Joey Santillo Statement:
The work I have produced is not meant to trick the eye or leave the viewer wondering if I was trying to tackle a bigger issue at hand. Rather, they have been made for the viewer to relate to them in their own way through their own personal experiences. Somewhere everybody has a home. There are signs and symbols that are so specific to each that only those who have been can truly feel that meaning behind them. Here in the United States these little subjects are what makes a place home. The goal is to unlock that feeling of nostalgia that is so unique to each person. We focus so much on the places we are going that we sometimes forget where we have been. This work is meant to be that subtle reminder.
