Improbable Spring. Detail.
Gouache, archival ink jet prints, beeswax on mulberry paper; "found" wallpaper, wood, plastic, audio components.
43 painted panels and 62 "found" wallpaper panels, 7"X10" each, dimensions variable. Installed at the Westchester Arts Council, White Plains, NY.
This installation was a response to my father's death, the images of robins inspired by a game we played each spring as to who would spot the first bird of the season. The robin, historically associated with rebirth, also relates - through juxtaposition - to temporality, loss, and memory.
