Valladolid Yucatan Doors – Turning Turquoise  

Materials: Photos printed on fabric, floating frame

Techniques: Quilted photos on fabric stretched on artist’s canvas frame, mounted in a floating frame

Decaying buildings delight me with the layers of structure they reveal.

The peeling layers of paint, crumbling stucco and repairs are very rich in texture and reveal the story of the building’s journey through time. There’s a sense of sadness as well as I think about how so much of the past is being bulldozed down to create something new. What will our lives be like without this connection to the past?
