Wallpaper Series Mixed Media

Wallpaper Series – Mixed Media

This mixed media series uses wallpaper and its design as the back drop for stories to be told. The “canvas” is found remnant rolls of wallpaper. Once painted on the unforgiving treated wallpaper surface it is photographed and printed and then additional medium; gouache and oil stick, are applied to the archival paper. The layering is part of the story telling; literally with medium, and figuratively as layers of occasions and life milestones that occur in homes that see years of living. There is a dream like quality that blurs time and occasion but hopefully evokes a feeling for the viewer.
