Hallway, Grand Rapids, MI
Select your print and framing options:
This hallway, from the Homewood Suites in Grand Rapids, MI, is one of the "thin places" I've encountered on recent travels. A "thin place," from Celtic Christianity, is a place (in the words of author Sylvia Maddox) "where the veil that separates heaven and earth is lifted and one is able to receive a glimpse of the glory of God." Admittedly, my thin places are rather mundane; when the "veil" lifts for me while looking at something like this hallway, I am more often presented with a pleasant kind of dread rather than a holy vision. I try to bring the unpredictability of printmaking to my paintings and work on paper. The carpeting that so captured my attention was rendered with a linoleum cut.
