Storefronts Seattle 2017
Amazon campus (Republican Street window - SLU)
Acrylic paint and aritst-made collaged papers of various wood grains on meadow-aged, nature-sculpted plywood, 6’ x 22’

Plywood, like wine and cheese, improves with age, especially when exposed to extremes of heat, sun, cold, and moisture. Each element chiseled away at the plywood sheets, delaminating the horizontal and vertical plies unevenly to create strangely beautiful objects with dramatic textures and irregular edges. I took over where nature left off. To accentuate the wacky beauty of nature’s work, I incorporated color and collage to inject new life into the irrepressible plywood.
