The installation comprises three salvaged doors arranged as a free-standing screen displaying daily spontaneous artworks in collage, pastel, oil, watercolor, as well as a self-portrait painted in oils on a salvaged mirror. Various found objects suggest imaginary scenarios between the doors, their former owners and the artworks hidden on the other side. Each viewer will bring his or her own experiences to the interpretation while walking around the installation.
Doors form such an integral part of our lives, yet how conscious are we of what lies on the other side? Of what hands may have opened these doors and may have briefly or irrevocably touched us? Of what each humble piece of wood has itself experienced in an existence that may prove longer than our own?
