I originally decided to use light switch covers as a canvas as a less expensive way for viewers to buy an original piece of art. I was also interested in the idea that these pieces can be used functionally, as true light-switch covers, or displayed in groups as a multi-paneled painting. As I began to dive deeper into this idea and its potential, I realized that I wanted to cover an entire wall in light switch covers.
I ended up painting approximately 450 covers in order to cover a 19.5ft wall. My intention was for the viewer to be completely engulfed in hundreds of small pieces of art. The majority of these covers are abstract pieces, utilizing design, texture and composition; some are realism, one group makes up a larger representational image, and a few depict small segments from other larger paintings.
