Here’s Lookin’ At You

HERE’S LOOKIN’ AT YOU
May 2016
Charles Adams Studio Project
Lubbock, TX

I’ve been interested in hand-printed wallpaper since my thesis exhibition in 2008, and this installation was a continuation of that medium. I designed and printed five wallpaper patterns, as well as installing a few textiles and hand-made books. The wallpaper patterns were focused on concepts of visual intensity, migraines, and impending doom and anxiety. Fun stuff! The most recent composition was a pattern made of this gun range target guy, who may have been modeled on Ernest Borgnine, an NYC cop, or a notorious thug. Gun culture is not one with which I am particularly comfortable, despite my midwestern upbringing.
