Paula Campagne – Conditional Comfort

Paula Campagne

The use of space tells a lot about people. In this illustration, I wanted to create an environment that depicts the relationship between me and my sister, so I combined our rooms from the house we grew up in. I took from real things we own, and things we wish we owned, and focused a lot on details. I want this examination of our relationship to show the challenges of being so similar to someone, yet having major differences, and how that affects the perspective of family, closeness, love, and sisterhood.

I feel the need to dedicate this piece of work to my sister. Since she left for college, her absence has left me to think about the impact we have made on each other’s lives.
