Solo exhibition at the Peerless Gallery, Peoria, IL, 2009
Cardboard, packing materials, staples, shopping bags, plastic grass
rethos size: 10′ x 28′ x 10′
Finding myself in disbelieve and in a city without a recycling program, I recreated a forest from cardboard and other materials that would have gone unrecycled.
Wall Installation: 24′ x 8′ x 18″, Floor Installation: 12′ x 12′ x 18″
Growing out of the cracks rather than falling through the cracks, I was inspired by the residency founders’ efforts to renew the life of the building and bring new art to the local community.
