Description

My subway stations, tourist cabins, and hotels are painted wooden constructions built around interior spaces that are visible to varying degrees but physically inaccessible. Each work stands taller than a person but is smaller than the object-place it evokes. Because the scale is reduced, the tiles and other architectural details must be painted and drawn and shaped by hand. Thus that which at first appears to be public, impersonal, and manufactured reveals a surface that is intimate, private, and tactile.
