The idea for “Fair Warning” stemmed from my thoughts about how unpredictable and crazy life can be. I wanted a Mad Hatter type tea party and since I use water in my work… what better way than a flooded room? Although that was the initial inspiration, it evolved to carry a few different narratives.
The process started with sketches, then preparations for a photoshoot. Preparing for the shoot took over a month. I set up a tea party in my pool and gathered three strangers willing to get wet on a cold winter day. After my vision came together, I painted on and off for five months.
