SERIES | THE BED  2001-2002

The bed is an object that is loaded with implications.  It is more than a place to sleep.  It is a place of comfort, of rest, of relaxation.  It is host to intimate relations.  It also has to be serviced by its owner or occupier, or by hired help.  It is a place to die.  Not many objects in life are so much a part of it.  The color image of the small girl in pajamas going to bed was based on an illustration from a child’s picture dictionary of the 1950s and was the catalyst for my thinking about all the roles a bed plays in one’s life, both simple and complex.
