This design stems from a few personal things in my life. The first part of the inspiration comes from my forever obsession with optical illusions, specifically the work of MC Escher. The second and third part of my inspiration comes from my dad. He’s been rebuilding and remodeling our houses throughout my entire childhood. So this is my version of “rebuilding and remodeling”. The third part of this is from my dad’s love of birds and bird houses. He’s built and created so many birdhouses and bird hotels stacked on top of each other without rhyme or reason, but with perfect balance and harmony. Sitting outside listening to the birds and also being woken up to the sound of a hammer or tile saw were how I grew up, with my dad.
The title “In Limbo” comes from the transitional periods we are in and out of throughout our lives. Though the left side of the piece, or the “past” is pretty and bright, it dulls in comparison to the right side, or the “future”. No matter how many doors we have been in and out of, there will always be more.
This piece measures in at 18”x10” and comes ready to hang with attached chain.
