Using the house as a metaphor for the human condition we explore our preoccupation with all kinds of power relationships. In keeping with the surrealist tradition we began the Surreal Estate drawings by playing the pictorial game Exquisite Corpse. Conversing through word and drawing we develop the themes and connections which are revealed through this surreal image making method. Sometimes humorous or scurrilous or tragic or tedious, all facets of life are experienced out of site but cheek by jowl. Each folded drawing opens out to become a building and in the series in turn becomes a street.
