ABOUT THE WORK
"These mixed media drawings that I have been calling "wallpaper drawings", are loosely based off the age old saying "If these walls could talk". I am playing with a dichotomy between the decorative floral compositions and their subversive captions. The floral elements are hand painted on paper with watercolor and sign painters enamel the captions are added last using a dry transfer process. the mixed techniques borrowing from both decorative and communicative art." - B Thom Stevenson
