The Guild is pleased to present A Home In My Heart by artist Sion Irwin-Childs


Houses without Humans.
Humans without Houses.
Humans without a Home.
Abandoned Humans.
Abandoned Houses.
Abandoned Homes.
Abandoned Hope.

A house is a physical construct.
The concept of “home” is not.

What constitutes that feeling of being “at home–of belonging somewhere
to something
or someone?

A friend of mine sat me down and said to me;
“your heart is not at peace.
You need to find a home in your heart.
Then it will no longer matter where your physical body is”.

What and where is this path to “home”?
Is the path to “home” also the path to “happiness”?

A Home in My Heart is a multimedia meditation composed of photographic images, video installations and soundscapes that explore the abstract, intangible concepts of home and belonging.
