A big sofa
"A big sofa"
2011
8. "A big sofa"   September, 13, 2011

Here is a common living room, with a look and feel of the 1950s. Someone is sitting on this great big sofa, probably looking at the painting on the wall. In this painting we can find a message that is repeated somewhat in the print itself. The sitter's legs and the nearly dead tree on the side are saying the same thing as we can see in the painting. But the tree is trying to live again, in a second life, perhaps we can say. The box up high on the shelf is out of reach for nearly everyone. Nearby is the sun/ceiling light. There is a tension to this print despite its initial seeming sweetness and innocence. There are 17 colors; an edition of 5.
