Home has taken on new meaning in the past two years. The pandemic forced us inside our homes, making us more aware of our spaces and the people with whom we share our home. We got to experience our friends, family, loved ones, and roommates in new ways. We have gained a new insight into each other's habits, odd traits, and pet peeves.

In Homebodies, artist Brian Kreydatus explores relationships and spaces in the time of a pandemic. These paintings and prints document and archive him, his home, and his family during this challenging time. From messy tables, to Zoom meetings, to naps, to mindless internet scrolling, this is how he lived. In fact, it is how many of us lived.

Brian Kreydatus is a professor at William & Mary where he has taught printmaking and life drawing since 2001. He received his BFA from Syracuse University and MFA from the University of Pennsylvania. He has had solo exhibitions in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Chicago. Kreydatus has also participated in group shows in New York, Philadelphia, Ireland, France, Serbia, Canada, China, and Japan.
