Looking-Glass House, 1998
Threadwaxing Space, New York, NY
Latex on Walls, 9 ft. x 132 ft.
The images in Looking-Glass House are derived from old magazine depictions of historical, traditional American homes that are combined, drawn from, manipulated through a computer and then blown-up to room-size. The image is painted with black lines on a silver shape onto the surface of the walls of the gallery. Like images on the surface of a mirror, the rooms in Looking-Glass House could be seen as a distorted reflection of real rooms or as glimpses into a series of imaginary rooms.
Venetia Kapernekas Fine Arts, NYC
Latex on plastic, 10 ft. x 30 ft. and 10 ft. x 20 ft.
This installation transforms the walls of the gallery into two opposing, yet connected illusionistic spaces: a rustic early American interior and a wooded grove. In these paintings, black and pearlescent painted lines and blobs on a grid of frosted Mylar coalesce into image from a distance while dissolving into abstraction up close.
