Philadelphia artist Leah Bailis creates architectural structures that resemble cross-sections of white clapboard houses. They are not replicas as the scale is similar in size to a child's playhouse. Yet they are crafted with model-like precision using common materials including cardboard, Styrofoam, wood, and glue. Representing only portions of homes such as the façade or the infrastructure of a wall, Bailis sparks the viewer's imagination as one ponders these architectural fragments.
