Dislocated from both time and space, my latest series of drawings explore the false barriers and flimsy structures that create mental distance between human beings and nature. In Vacancy, I am the architect of a fake utopian commune of trailer homes inspired by conversations with a wide range of people: a willing victim of wanderlust, a doctor of philosophy, an aeronautical engineer and an entrepreneur/mother, among others. Each abode is designed with one of these people in mind. Dense layers of graphite frame colorful gouache edifices in a theatrical stacking of the familiar and imagined—an attempt to capture wonderment through the imitation of landscape. Alien and grand in their bareness, the results appear collaged, lifting unremarkable constructions into nostalgically flamboyant advertisements for the future/past.
