Unsettled is a painting composed from exposing historic photographs of the landscape from Lake Washington’s eastside directly onto canvas, over a fold-dyed grid. Acrylic paint is applied over the photographic underpainting, creating both an interference and unification of the quilt-like mosaic. This “tapestry painting” aims to represent a tension between nature and development, a friction between loss and gain, and an awareness of past, present, and future.
