Rear Window

This series culminated from the two years I spent living in the same apartment in west Los Angeles. Inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954 film, Rear Window, I spent three months documenting and then drawing my neighborhood. Through this series, I noted the interesting and juxtaposed architecture in the sprawl of LA, all while examining the unique characteristics within and around the houses in my neighborhood. Each drawing is around 40x60 inches, so the process of making these works is very close in scale to the actual size of my apartment windows. They are all made with graphite pencil on watercolor paper. In both instances that they have been exhibited publicly, I have hung the drawings at the same height of the original windows that inspired them.
