Mustards and Cranberry

Egg tempera on masonite and pine panel, handwoven frame using stained poplar, Peruvian Highland wool yarn, and organic cotton cord, 10" x 10", 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.

‘Mustards and Cranberry’ is a portrait of the living room of my paternal grandfather’s home pictured in 1989.  The piece centers on a Fenton cranberry glass bowl set amongst a mustard-patterned carpet and hardwood furniture. The woven frame depicts the also mustard-tinted flower and foliage pattern of the couch found in the same room.


The egg tempera medium is a permanent painting medium mixed by hand using dry pigments, water, and egg yolk.
