When the Shadows Get Long, Mixed media. 2020

A crocheted blanket of a red and blue radially symmetric, gradient pattern, hangs from the wall. To the right, hangs a photograph of a drip of chili oil on a dining table in a thrifted picture frame.

Nestled in the corner between, a wicker side table with a fresh coat of teal paint rests upon a detached corner of the blanket on the floor. The two front table feet sit atop crocheted coasters.

On top of a green placemat “rug” sits a miniature glazed ceramic living room set: a couch with a flax-seed-filled fabric cushion, floor lamp, side table and lucky bamboo plant.

A brass locket with a photograph of 公公 and a hand carved maple wood hair clip sit on the couch together.
