The House She Wants to Build is inspired by the artist’s own childhood home, and by considering the notions of dwelling and existence, she sees herself as one with the house and even extends out from the basement floor to reach deep into the ground, whereby she reaches the childhood homes of her parents and even her ancestors. She sees infinite of possibilities with this house, where different shapes and forms are imaginable. However, although tangible, it is immaterial and is without a name. This house serves as a metaphor, and it could be seen as a human body, a concept, an imagery, a value, and an ideology, and it could even be a proposal for the future. The artist fully exposes her own inner state of mind through the highly supernatural and mysterious paintings. Through the imagery of home and the meaning it embodies, Kuo has created a model with paintings derived from her consciousness, which pays tribute to the memories of her own family.
