The Wisteria Seed Pod painting series was created for the installation, "Memento (If These Walls Could Talk)," installed in 2006 in the Glyndor Gallery at Wave Hill (Bronx, NY) (see "Installations" section). These life size trompe l'oeil gouache paintings of wisteria seed pods were done on translucent Japanese gampi paper and, while they visually created an optical illusion of the 3-dimensional objects, the physicality of the gampi paper, itself, combined with the straightforward installation of the paintings directly onto the gallery walls created an inverse tension to the sense of illusionism.
