Exposures : Private Spaces / Public Personas at The Warhol Museum

Private Spaces / Public Personas is an installation designed by Jamie Earnest for the 2016 season of Exposures. In her painting practice, the artist exploits unconventional materials such as aluminum tape, carpet fuzz, insulation, drywall tape, cement, contact paper, latex gloves, and joint compound to create an abstract representation of the “homes” of Andy Warhol and Michael Chow.  The senior BFA student at Carnegie Mellon University developed 3 large-scale paintings that embody details inspired by both artists’ private and residential spaces. The objects, confined to the boundaries of the paintings enter into a conversation with each others. This dialogue, along with the memories the objects generate, is what the artist seeks to explore.
