Bauhaus Breakout
2010
textiles and mixed media on canvas
18 x 18"
This work started at MoMA's Bauhaus show in the winter of 2010. There was a workshop space where people could sit at low tables piled with fabric pieces and pretend they were back in elementary school, putting together collages with glue on cardboard, also provided. It was great fun, and I was ridiculously pleased with the piece I took home. It sat around my studio for months waiting for its moment, and eventually I rose to the challenge of seeing if I could take it to a more expansive level.
