Doubles is a series of stitched and painted fabric works which take their form from the shape of a deconstructed cardboard box. Once holding precious dishware, the box was salvaged, emptied and flattened. Its contours were then traced as the basis for the series such that: each work has an identical shape but singular imagery. The materials are ones repurposed from the home: roofing membrane, house paint, tulle, thread, non-slip rug pads and chiffon. 


Doubles may be installed in a range of orientations—flat on the wall, laid on the floor, folded up as the original box might have been, paired into diptychs, or mounted on their own. Each piece measures roughly 33 in x 33 in.
