THE ORTHO ROOMS

The everyday world of the domestic landscape provides the subject matter of The Ortho Rooms. Taking its name from the popular Ortho Books for home and garden care, this series of works blurrs perceptual distinctions between painting, photography and constructed reality. Set behind lenses, these foreshortened spaces occupy the hidden architecture of the wall, offering the viewer an encompassing and magical view of the mundane – a backyard overgrown with dandelions, a kitchen linoleum floor pierced by the leg of a stool, a downspout clogged with dead leaves.
Each consists of a meticulously constructed diorama installed whitin the hidden architecture of the wall and viewed through a circular window of glass lenses.
