SWIM CHAIR, 2022
reclaimed chair reupholstered with sherpa, epoxy resin, 24pcs sea life toys
The last piece of the PINK BONE collection. These collections are therapy for me. I channel childhood traumas and affirm myself with abstract concepts that strike my soul while journaling. I’ve realized there is no grand advice to lessen the fall. No one is well equipped and we’re thrown in to life. It’s terrifying but its important to know you will be aight! ‘Sink or swim, there will always be love somewhere’ - warmth is eternally present - the deepest warmth, warmth of a mother. The only thing that saves you in an NYC winter. Sink or swim also references growing up not knowing how to swim. In this chair I’m sitting high above the water on sherpa, my symbol of the deepest warmth, the warmth of a mother, the abyss.
