The Tigers- Exterior
2015
tin and tin type photos
6" x 8"
The collector gave me two images of her grandparents and asked me to create two pieces. The pieces had to be designed to be hung together or separately as the great-granddaughter will eventually have one of them hanging in her home.
I used the leaves as a unifying element and chose to show the couple in a suburban home (using parts of an old tin dollhouse) as they eventually settled in NJ after leaving their native Germany. Note: their last name was Tiger.
