Wooden table, two chairs, and a tablecloth printed linocut on linen.
Culture implies a transformation of nature, and this work embodies an evolutionary imprint of nature to culture, to nature, and back to culture. The Damask pattern in the tablecloth, consist of fine lines that flow like swirling currents cascading down the side of the table, then progressing into a waterfall reflecting the natural environment; whirlpools twist and turn into a series of markings that transform into a map, the cultural interpretation of nature. The play between public and private space is evident in its reference to domesticity. The viewer is invited into the space and the tablecloth takes the viewer outside of the space in its landscape of Niagara Falls that transmogrifies into a map of the same area.
