Franz Mayer of Munich
Sandblasted and hand-painted glass fabricated at Franz Mayer of Munich
Porcelain sinks and toilets hand-painted at Kohler, Sheboygan, WI. Images of women in paintings and sculptures from the museum collection appear to float in a watery landscape that traverses all 4 walls of the restroom, mingling with nets and aquatic flora and fauna. In the toilets and sinks, fauna, flora, and nets appear to be disappearing down the drains, conjuring the larger world of water beyond the walls.
