Canopy Hotel


A relief based installation for the Canopy hotel in Philadelphia. The piece translates my experiments with creating woodcut blocks into a large scale, permanent wooden mural. The composition is an adaptation of my ‘Miter Head’ woodcuts which are created by engraving hundreds of dados in various increments while using obscure miters to align them. The mural aimed to mirror the custom mill work located throughout the hotel, while achieving an architectural intervention through introducing play, color, materiality and human form.
