Antique chair with original art upholstery titled "School Is Out"
A few years ago I had a solo exhibition titled “Get Off My Chair”. I custom-upholstered antique chairs with my original nature art, with a goal of enticing people to get off of their chairs and enjoy the great outdoors. Somehow I have since acquired many, many chairs.
In an effort to make room in my basement, and back by popular demand, I have upholstered this stunning oak chair using material that was printed with a piece of art I created titled “School Is Out”.
Little schools of fish feed bigger schools of fish and so on. Such is life. The sunlight reflects through black water in the original piece highlighting the fish dancing in the underwater forest.
The chair has a few new red fish swimming in the water with bright red weeds flanking either side. This material is bonded and sewed on, and will be very durable. In fact, I think this piece of furniture will just get better as it ages. It would be perfect as a statement chair in any home.
**Note the original piece that matches this chair is also for sale. Have a look in the "Mixed Media" folder for it. These pieces look great together.
