“Dutch Shower” was produced while in residency at Foundation B.a.d, Rotterdam, Netherlands, June and July 2009. The work came out of a larger project that involves experimenting with commercially printed matter. My choices are based on the quality of the printing and the paper.
This series was created in 2009 while I was an artist-in-residence at Foundation B.a.d, Rotterdam, Netherlands. The project was supported by the Baltimore Rotterdam Sister City Artist Exchange Program. Thanks to Rachel Singers, Annet Couwenberg and the sister city committee for making this a successful project. Using found house paint I manipulated the surface to shift and distort the model exaggerating the body into “stick figures.”
