Follow Suit (detail), silkscreen ink print on rice paper

Reminiscent of wallpaper, two paper stencils were hand-cut then silkscreened in a repeating pattern. Irons, clothespins and kettles are juxtaposed with axes and spades, bringing to question where power and control lie in household roles. Nostalgia meets the vibration of black and white in dynamic patterns of gender, domesticity and what gets to be the dominant pattern.
