‘Home Within a Home’ is literally a house within a house. Within his current apartment building, when looked at up close, we see that inside the complex is the “Traditional” Korean home he grew up in. This tells us no matter where he lives he will always have those roots embedded inside him. They will always be there to remind him of his humble beginnings. When looking at this composition, it is amazing to see the complex and intricate detail the artist went through to portray such a moving and life altering portion of his life. It takes a lot of guts to put oneself out there and to bare ones inner most workings to give us a glimpse of what it is like to assimilate from one culture to the next.
