Item Details
In Patriasana, Wholesomeland, figures dance in a joyful frieze across the station, their brilliant colors and undulating forms evoking the vibrant nature of Fordham Road. The figures’ shaped background panels represent basic wholesome items sold in the shops lining Fordham Road such as an umbrella, a hat, a coat, boots, pants, and gloves. The border between panels and the rectangular window edge is made of translucent glass, allowing the background colors of Fordham Road to provide a muted backdrop. These original images are created as paintings on canvas and carved wood, translated into fused and faceted glass windows.
