In this work, reproductions of two still lives by Severin Roesen in the White House's collection are digitally color rebalanced, and set behind green and red mouth-blown glass. The original paintings inspired Patricia Nixon’s 1972 White House Christmas tree.
'Triangle' is a component of the solo exhibition 'Embassy S ites' at Tomorrow Maybe, Hong Kong. The exhibition included a Christmas tree from the Eaton Hotel visible through a slit. Around it were 30 glass spheres laser etched with ornaments, plus one pink, gold, red, and green sphere--the colors of Nixon's decorations.
The invitation card included a reproduction of the 1972 White House Christmas card as a tear-off postcard.
