Chairs

Last year I was stuck on dead sparrows as a subject (a few more here). Dead birds served me well.  They expressed whatever it was I needed to express (still not entirely sure what that was) … until my cat got a hold of the model and I was forced to move on.

When I did, I returned to an old love that creeps up on me every few years.  I don’t know what it is about old, wooden chairs, but I feel them, like people. They are characters.

Here is my collection of chairs, so far.

And the term “study” sounds so cliche.  I prefer to think of this as a “flight” of chairs.  All wooden chairs, but a in a variety of flavors, with different undertones and aftertastes.

(One day I’ll take well-lit photos.)
