Parents' Bedroom
2014
Paper, latex and acrylic paint, foamcore, wallpaper paste, Tyvek, staples
14' x 14' x 11'
Based on the color scheme of my parents' bedroom (Father's side) when I was a child, 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.
