Egg tempera on masonite and pine panel, handwoven frame using stained poplar Peruvian Highland wool yarn, and organic cotton cord, 8" x 8", 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.
‘Vertical Vibrations’ is a portrait of the back porch and connected dining room of my maternal grandparent’s home. The piece combines an image of the chandelier pictured in 1978, the porch pillars, the leaves of the trees, and the patterning of blinds facing out onto the porch. The woven frame depicts the pattern found on the curtains of the porch sliding door.
The egg tempera medium is a permanent painting medium mixed by hand using dry pigments, water, and egg yolk.
