Inspired by photographs of European Architecture.
I've never left the country. I've always wanted to. I remember daydreaming when I was really young about traveling and how it must feel. I remember daydreaming about what I was wearing, how I felt, conversations I might have, and adventures I would go on.

I never went. Haunted by all the money I spent on moments that I now wish I could forget entirely. Thinking about how much extra time I would have had back then if I didn't waste so much of my precious adolescence and young adulthood self-soothing with drugs and alcohol and all of the other instantly gratifying "coping skills" you can think of.

I used to convince myself that "one day" I will accomplish the things my heart deeply yearns for:

One day I will heal.

One day I will travel all over the world.

One day I will leave this toxic relationship.

One day I will eat food that will fuel my body.

One day I will stop running.

One day I'll be able to set boundaries.

One day I will stop using substances.

One day I will love myself.

At the same time, I believed to my core that day wouldn't come. I was in such a hopeless state for so long. My illness/disorder convinced me that I can/will just stop trying. Which is a really scary place to be. A place that a lot of people do not talk about. I like to call it the in-between. It's something that isn't talked about widely. It's either someone is in crisis or someone is doing "ok". When I say I'm doing "ok" it typically means I'm in this in-between place. That is something that needs to be talked about. I thought I was pretty isolated in that feeling, which made the feeling grow even bigger. Fleeting s******* thoughts that I would have to do everything in my power to ignore. Reminding myself that they are just thoughts and that I can get through these emotional responses.

The in-between of holding onto hope that those daydreams I had when I was a little girl could be a reality. While at the same time being crippled by so much fear that every action I was taking toward change wasn't curing the disturbing thoughts I was having. About to completely give up hope. Hope that some future me is somewhere in Europe holding her head up high, gathering inspiration for her art as she falls deeply in love with knowing herself, illuminating every room she walked into. I fought those feelings for that version of myself I knew I could become and for my inner child, just having to get through those really hard days.

Fast forward to today, I wouldn't have believed you if you told me I would be where I was today. I had expectations and fantasies about what it would feel and look like when I grew a relationship with myself. Expectations of what true healing would feel like. What my intimate relationships would feel like. I still have days, weeks, and even sometimes months that I feel like I'm back in the "in-between". It feels different because I have now experienced some of the deepest reassurances of hope in ways I didn't know were possible. I know now whatever happens, if I don't give up hope and consistently do what's best for me and my mental health, I will continue to grow.

I still haven't left the country. Now I hold gratitude for that fact because I know when I am blessed with that life-changing opportunity I will be able to show up with love for myself and excitement in expanding my knowledge of my existence.

our work serves as a liberating exploration of our inner selves, offering us empowerment and purpose for our emotions to be alchemized into color, textures, patterns, and forms that reflects our journey of self discovery and expression.

Taylor and Connor Robinson are Charleston, SC-based artists creating sculptural mixed media artwork using the moniker visceral home.
Their works interpret the human psyche — for trauma and healing, the passage of time, and the relationship between humans and the natural world. Over the past few years, they’ve honed in on a practice where the married partners collaborate: Connor creates handcrafted frames and surfaces on which Taylor paints abstract images. Their art is a kinship of two individual processes and personal meditative techniques that ultimately combine to achieve one thoughtfully balanced vision. The complexities of coping with cPTSD and substance use disorder are threaded throughout their works, revealing a timeline of visceral indentations of the emotional journey of healing.

They create artwork to cope with the fear of uncertainty. From these monumental moments, a catalog of collections was born, channeling and transforming various emotions into something useful. With time, they let go of situations and relationships that held them hostage, releasing and transmuting that pain as a new creative avenue toward feeling understood, relieved, and valuable. An abstract expression of the heavy moments that would drown them if there was no cup to pour in. A celebration of the moments of joy and triumph. Their art is a tactile alternative to self-destruction. It is self-preservation. Pouring themselves into creating something that can translate that emotion into a tangible experience that can be visualized and felt viscerally is what they dream of as the ultimate solution to the condition of being human.

Inspired by the human condition and how the psychology of design and art can influence our mood, the team is passionate about aligning with like-minded designers to create art that adds depth to a concept. visceral home was given its name after being told multiple times how their art provoked emotion that the viewer physically felt but couldn’t find the words for. They are motivated by innovative, expressive spaces that marry artistry and functionality. The couple aims to create pieces that are investments, not decor. Original works that outlast fleeting trends, especially in this new social media age. Art to pass down and be shared. A visual story that feels just as much your own as it was theirs. Their influences in terms of design styles come from various periods, designers, and architects. 1950s-1970s architecture and interiors; Mid-Century, Bauhaus, Scandinavian, Mediterranean, Asian, Japandi, Industrial, and a splash of boho designs. Keeping in mind the spaces their art lands will continue to morph into new personalities, they focus on creating art that can be everlasting through many design changes.
