rooms to let, melissa vogley woods studio





Here are some images of my work in progress at the Rooms To Let Art Space. My process involves chiseling out an imagined room-scape in two layers. The space has a few indicators at to who previously occupied it, predominantly there were several Hanna Montana stickers. I decided to trace the room as if it was occupied not so long ago, while in a second layer illuminate an older occupant. In this process I am considering the future of the house that will be gutted, and rehabbed with new walls. The gutting of traces of former occupants became interesting to me and an attention to address this loss as well as renewal.
