Comfort view one



Installation with chalkboard paint, rocking chair, pickaxe, rope and theatrical lighting

The inspiration for Comfort arises from a childhood rocking chair that I remember as a soothing place for reading, quiet contemplation and deep sleep.

The installation intends to provoke a theatrical dreamscape whose meaning is vague but emotional. Multiple interpretations are possible but a sense of foreboding informs each.

A formal structure is also present with rpeating parallel vertical lines dominate but the perpendicular shapes of the metal pickaxe and rockers base reflect each other.
