Orlando, FL, March 25, 2022: CHIO brings us a collection of new works inspired by childhood memories of laying tile with his late father.
"This collection embodies childhood memories of laying tile walls and floors with my father. Although the work was laborious, I cherish this part of my life. These moments involved much more than laying tile. When I accompanied my dad, it was as if we stepped into a separate world. Large, gated communities with manicured entrances. Houses bigger than I could imagine, with grand entryways and boastfully elegant staircases. These houses were empty, and it was our job to prepare them. As I watched my dad carefully smooth the grout over the tile, I couldn’t help but think how beautiful it looked. He would never call himself one, but my dad was an artist. This collection commemorates his artistry and the sacred time I spent with him."
THIN SET will be on display March 25, between 6:00p.m. and 9:00p.m at DAC (643 Lexington Ave. Orlando, FL 32801).
Downtown Arts Collective is an artist run studio, gallery and school in Downtown Orlando.
