James Read : Why the focus on houses/the home in your Distillation series?
Thomas Doyle : The Distillation series is really about boiling life down to the moments that define who we are. Consequently, many of the works deal with the interactions between parents and children in or around the home. The house is really the centre of the universe for a child - it's the stage for the majority of memories, and it's the symbol of security, joy, terror, etc. Most of the homes in that series are imperilled, but maybe no more so than the families they house. In that way, the houses take on personalities of their own.
