The House with the Golden Windows
This is my graduation piece from Lakehead University. It's called The House with the Golden Windows . Each wall is made from found papers stitched in a grid to artist's canvas. The idealized images are from glossy home and garden magazines. I use the house shape often as a symbol of protection and privacy.
I am posting these images because Ann Clarke, one of my thesis advisors, visited us here on Manitoulin for an over night stop yesterday on her way west from Kingston to Thunder Bay. She teaches painting and drawing at Lakehead but is now on a sabbatical year. Ann showed me photos of her visit to Berlin.
