Egg tempera on masonite and pine panel, handwoven frame using stained poplar, Peruvian Highland wool, and organic cotton cord, 9" x 9", 2020
This work is part of a series that deconstructs and reassembles the facets, objects, memories, patterns, and textures of selected rooms found in the homes of my upbringing.
‘Mid-century squares’ is a portrait of the bathroom found in my childhood home. The work combines the facets of the room including the tiling, radiator, and bathtub installed in the 1950’s and the window pictured at different moments in time. The woven frame depicts the 1980’s wallpaper lining the insides of the bathroom cupboards.
The egg tempera medium is a permanent painting medium mixed by hand using dry pigments, water, and egg yolk.
