This piece also began in West Orange, NJ, prior to my move to Durham, NC. While you may not notice any particular defining landmarks, the crossroads are two streets I spent most of my time on - either driving into and out of our neighborhood, or walking the kids to and from school. My partner and I were in the midst of deciding whether or not to sell our home and relocate. I completed this piece after we moved, and during sessions of hosting a pod of elementary kids during virtual schooling. I'm becoming more intrigued with the notion of finish, and enjoying pieces that feel unfinished. The striped chair in this work was inspired by watercolor artist, Elissa Nesheim. She owns the chairs and sent me a photo when she was I was painting seats.
This work was SOLD at the Pocket Gallery during the Taking Up Space exhibit in May, 2022.
