Musical Chairs: Economic Crisis in G-Minor
(2009), an installation of thirteen children's
chairs whose cushions are embroidered
with portraits of financial “geniuses” who
have played leading roles in the ruination of
the economy not only of the United States
but much of the world.
Details from Blue Chip (2009-2011),
hand-embroidered portraits of fifty artists who
are, or have been, internationally recognized as
important artists and, in most cases,
financially successful.
