THIS ORIGINAL HAS SOLD. THIS PIECE IS IN OUR INVENTORY FOR INSPIRATION + RECREATION.
NO TWO ORIGINAL WORKS ARE THE SAME. IF YOU FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS PIECE, WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO RE-CREATE IT WHILE INTENTIONALLY TAILORING THE NEW WORKS TO YOUR SPACE.

45w x 36h x 2 depth. hand-spun naturally dyed yarn bought locally, driftwood we found on sullivans island sc, plaster + concrete on a walnut wood canvas.


As I was planning this piece I was so anxious to get carried away by the detail and ultimately allow that to distract from the most breathtaking wood grains in this slab of walnut wood that I felt passionately about being the star of the show.

Connor built this canvas at least 4 months ago and it took me 2+ months to build the courage to start painting. The past few months when I felt creative inspired I dove in head first telling myself to think minimalistic; my brain flooded with what I’d seen that day on Instagram, flashbacks of the most intricate yet dainty details created by some of the most talented NYC artists I got to view in person this summer, and the comments made by others wishing I would create more simplistic pieces. I personally feel most drawn to simplistic, minimalist art myself.

For as long as I can remember I have become easily overstimulated in most situations. Even home, relaxing: water dripping, the sound of my own breathing, my roommate listening to music, scratchy sweater, my hair touching my face. I’m not afraid to admit anymore that I am an extremely highly sensitive person, but with that comes A LOT of chronic overstimulation. Which echoes alongside anxiety, and tag teams with my intrusive thoughts like a gang of evil villains. Everyone who knows me personally knows what my face looks like when I start soaking up all the energy in the room, begin to overanalyze, and can start to hear how bright the lights are in the room.

Painting has been the closest I’ve ever been to a truly meditative state. If I am not completely immersed in a project I can find myself starting to get overstimulated by all the different colors, tools, paint splatter, racing thoughts + ideas popping in my head. Some of my favorite paints have been curated by shifting from that state at the beginning stages of the painting ending up in a deeply relaxed meditative state.

Alongside those favorite works are a huge stack of rejected paintings that were overthrown by 100 ideas at once, 500 re-dos, and a lot of self-criticisms. When I make a few of those paintings, I find myself starting to scroll the internet for inspiration, running around outside hoping the flowers in a plantation would re-invigorate the desire to paint; when it doesn’t, I end up blocked. A cycle I’ve been working hard on breaking, knowing the harder and crueler I am to myself the worse the block will become. I listened to this podcast that kept saying “you cannot create good art without creating bad art”. That mantra has endlessly stuck in my head, and I am entirely grateful since it helps me to forgive myself quicker for slipping into the cycle, knowing I just need a break, not a mindless scroll.


My art goal has been to keep working towards achieving mindfulness while creating. Not only while I am in a meditative flow, listening to a guided meditation, coming down from the joy of a favorite activity, or in a calm happy mood. Mindful when it really matters. When my brain starts playing tricks on me. I start over-analyzing my art, adding additional colors or textures that I really didn’t want to add, or start cruelly judging myself. I’ve started practicing walking away when I start thinking too hard about a piece, going back to it with a set of new eyes.

When I finally built the courage to begin painting on my new favorite wooden canvas, I was able to step away when I felt I was starting to get overstimulated. After finishing the white plaster texture, I imagined myself anchoring myself in a focused lit space and decided to put down my paint knife and step back to reflect on what I started. I visualized an anchor on the canvas. Later that day I stumbled upon this piece of driftwood on sullivans island and knew I wanted it to be a part of this piece.

For some reason, this painting helps me regain my center and focus. Looking over at it when I feel I am starting to allow my mind to wander. The yarn floating relaxing freely centered on the driftwood. I hope this piece helps you feel centered, reminds you to remain mindful, and to keep gaining awareness every day on new paths of growth you can take.

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.
