Marble Obsession
Hand cut adhesive vinyl collages on vinyl flooring and on paper, pencil on vinyl flooring, oil on canvas paper
Dimensions variable

Installed at 6 x 6 Center for Photography, Limassol, Cyprus, September 2013

This installation was originally made for Museo Memoria de Andalucía in Granada, Spain. The work was completed during a residency at the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Granada. Macael marble, which is extracted from quarries in Almería, Andalucía, is widely used as flooring in Granada. During my residency, I collected leftover vinyl flooring that imitated marble. I found leftover vinyl and old flooring samples at local stores. I also made a series of adhesive vinyl collages based on tessellations found at the Nasrid Palaces in Alhambra and a series of paintings imitating the marble vinyl flooring.
