“Dinner Setting” Mixed Media 2006

This was a study in texture, shadow, and visual ambiguity.  I stretched white fabric over a dinner setting that was glued to a table top.  I mounted the piece on an easel.

The forms are not meant to be immediately recognizable even though anyone can recognize a dinner setting in a second.  The piece is meant to read as a blank canvas that prompts the viewer to ask a series of questions.  Why are there protrusions from the flat surface? Can I touch the surface?  What else beneath the fabric?  What does the form look like?

This project helped me form many of my ideas for my thesis in 2008.
