This was made during my (and Crosstown Arts) first artist residency. It was a 4 month residency. I painted a repeating pattern of multiple different systems on the outside walls. Then, I made a 1/3rd scale model of the room, and painted that. Then I continued making 1/3rd scale models with each successive room to the extent that the rooms became invisibly small. I showed it for one night along with two other large rooms as a solo show, and I tore it all down.
I prefer to make what I want to make. Although, I am usually so interested in how a painting is made that subject matter is almost completely interchangeable. This leaves a lot of room for making a project specific to a particular commission.
I made this all by myself.
