ARTWORK > MATTRESS BEAUTIES

Currently, I am appropriating figures from old mattress advertisements and making life-sized drawings, paintings, and prints of them to incorporate into grounds of reclaimed mattress fabric. The feeling of being fooled, played, or swindled is something I’m trying to translate in the work, which I see as some kind of marriage between fact and illusion.
