Joint Compound, Screen, Paint, Wire, Mesh, String

Installed at Oklahoma City Art Center. Gold Tooth spans the ages though textile references and modern materials. The tapestry's laid into the wall were created using a mud compound process that is regularly used to repair damaged drywall. The effect is a gridded topology that results on the back of a wall, naturally not seen in a repair. The seam between the tapestries and wall has been made obsolete. An image of line and pattern hovers in front by a tensioned network of wire and string. Photos: Genevieve Huba
