A Cape Cod Window

 

This painting of a Cape Cod house is made of 468 little paper squares that I pasted on the canvas. The window, flowers, and bushes were then added with oil paint.

My friends and family say that gluing together hundreds of little squares together is slightly obsessional, but I think it actually demonstrates great patience! I love to lose myself into creating and pasting these repeating patterns.

Then, I disrupt them with a disconnected and more loose painting on top. But as a whole, both parts are in fact united and harmonious, as they belong to the same Cape Cod house. This is how I feel about myself: one person with two very different cultures.

From the outside, they can look quite disconnected, but they actually are not. In fact, I find that I unite both cultures by painting them.

What about you? Do you feel like you are made of disconnecting parts? And what do you do to unite them?
