“In My Room” for the Luke

IMG_5382.JPG  I found this broken chair that once belonged to a child. I kept the chair and  realized that there is always a chair in my installations.  A chair is a resting place for the viewer so someone can sit down, rest and be with the work. But this chair is “broken” there’s a metaphor here, something tells me that  I have to use this chair as a starting place in this art piece.  It will lead me to whatever comes next…

IMG_5228.JPG The pieces come together.  I just need the canvas of this white wall in my studio and time to let it all simmer….
