I love this - it's crazy-reminiscent of chinoiserie/singerie decorations...was that a conscious influence?

Yes, Lindsey. This piece deals alot with aspects of singerie (humorous monkeys :) All of my work combines 3D paint with collage elements, the macabre and the Rococo--in this case, I cut up a piece of Rococo wallpaper and incorporated elements of it into the work. The wallpaper itself incorporated the elements that you brought up in your above comment. Thanks for noticing! I also incorporate Victorian ephemera from the 1800's, so there are elements of chinoiserie in the decorations and printed images of that time period as well. Your work is lovely--and probably the one person who's work I feel most connected with on here.
