From the essay by Sheryl Conkelton: "Home is perceived as shelter and sanctuary, a profound complex of ideas and emotions, a conceptual enterprise as well as a specific location. It is a potent expression of culture and of the individual...Catherine Wagner takes these precepts as her starting point. Each three-part work shows various aspects of one American home: rooms or portions of rooms and objects in ensembles that are carefully arranged for visitors or carelessly disposed in privacy. Wagner's project is a display of individual aspirations on a number of levels, not only that of the unseen owners but also her own, and, perhaps more important, that of the viewers who are asked to complete these works with their own stories."
