About this piece:
Patio Furniture explores the history of objects, the role they play in our lives, and what happens when they are discarded and then rediscovered. Changed through years of exposure to rain, frost and fire, this collection of arranged found objects and original poetry explores the meaning of ‘home’ and how possessions define our personal spaces. Patio Furniture is comprised of hand colored screen prints, set with Garamond type, and printed on a C&P press. The screen door box is custom designed using found window screening, and finished with white shellac.
