This piece seeks to elevate the American middle-class experience in ways that feel uncanny and humorous. Taking liberties with line, shape and color, this piece creates an ethereal structure that both reminds the viewer of the act of 'taking out the trash', while also juxtaposing reality by abstracting the forms and displaying the lightweight quality of the cloud like forms. The back of the chair is reminiscent of elastic lawn chairs at the pool.
