Childhood Home: Mom's Bedroom Wallpaper
2018
Paper, paint, glue
5' (h) x 4.5' (w)
Based on the flowered wallpaper in my parents' bedroom (Mother's side) when I was a child, which was then repainted blue, the work was created by pasting layers of painted paper to the gallery walls and floor and then peeling them back. The recreation captures the vanishing memories of childhood, translating feelings of remembrance and loss into extant reality.
