Anselmo’s inspiration for this series is derived from walks around Vancouver neighbourhoods in the twilight hours. There, he observed Houses, lit at the front door and from the interiors, contrasting with the darkening silhouettes of the surrounding trees and evening sky. The sky and cumulus clouds in his drawings and oil paintings symbolize peace and order. The trees exemplify life and they encircle the house, almost becoming part of it. The house, lit from inside and at the entrance, represents a bastion of protection, safety and belonging in the coming night. Home was also an opportunity for him to move away from his hyper-realistic oil paintings of the past and transition into a freer, more painterly method of representational art.
