in between the sheets
Peninsula Museum Studio Gallery, Burlingame, CA | September 2016
Continuing with her over arching themes of globalized culture pressing against local culture. Ubiquitous, everyday objects also exist in this space.

The show is centered on the liminal space occupied by the bed. The familiar physical space that serves as stage for some of life’s most pivotal moments as well as the seemingly insignificant ones. Moments that germinate in the confines of the bed and expand into all realms of our lives. Cries of joy, pain and pleasure are common place within its sheets. Renewing sleep, nightmares and dreams. Comfort and pain, life and death all feel at home in the bed.
