HOUSE PAINT PAVILION

Eastern Marlet, Detroit

 

THE PAINTING HAS OVERTAKEN THE HOUSE...

The pavilion was conceived of as an inhabitable painting, one that blurs the lines between a space and it's relationship to the artwork displayed upon its walls, sometimes fitting tightly, while other times appearing out of place. The painting is mapped onto digitally fabricated panels, locating the painting on the inside while reflecting the artwork on the exterior as a series of engraved lines, acting as a type of non-literal transparency...The engravings sometimes resemble typical exterior siding while at other times morph into a meandering line turning against the grain of the pavilion's folds...
