King & Queen

There's a specific symmetry in the arrangement of things that I enjoy painting. The chair duos have a coupling effect that I find both sweet and beautiful, and have a strong presence that reminds me of shrines in a way.

Since my proposal involved taking the viewer on a journey through my experience as a tourist, I decided to start by making paintings where my trip began: inside of my apartment. 

The interior is made of tufa, and the fireplace is carved in a traditional pattern by a friend in the town.
