This piece came from a garage sale in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It had been hand built by a father to hold his children’s clothes. And of course, it was painted white. I changed the background colour and had nice contemporary handles made to match my painted design.The chest didn’t have any feet; I added castors instead. The German name Rote Kommode refers to the vibrant red I chose.
Wood, acrylic paint, acrylic varnish, steel. 1998
