I am currently in the process of recreating my bathroom floor using the toilet paper rolls that have accumulated on my bathroom floor.   Since moving to Portland I have become more attuned to my domestic self.  Over the past three years I have scored, folded and filled each empty cardboard roll with plaster.  This project marks time, the domestic rhythms of my days and the unexpected beauty of their accumulation.  The smooth white hexagonal tile, delicately interspersed with blue, connects the phases of my life with a consistent pattern.   The work stands as a tribute to artists like Julia Fish and Mierle Ukeles who have guided me to see beauty in the commonplace.  The image of the tile evokes a shared memory, a celebration of homes of a certain age, the contrast of public building and private space, and ultimately a sense of loss.
