1842 Shadows. 2017-18
I owned and renovated an 1842 home in the heart of a town that changed hands eight times in four years during the Civil War. That home had whispering walls. With every layer I sanded, chipped away at, or revealed — a new piece of provenance emerged.
These drawings are to be viewed against a white wall — their lines evident only through the exposure of the shadow. Series contains 100 heads @ approximately 3.0″ tall x 2.5″ wide and supplemental abstract imagery of sounds that stemmed from the house.
