The Game Room

About This Project

I have always been fascinated by big game hunting and the trophies the hunters sought. The photograph to the left is of my mother with her trophies, a line of shot rats, which she shot in her family's barn with her gun. It is one of my favorite family keepsakes. "The Game Room” is a mosh-up of styles, the contemporary look of the Eames chair and the Corbusier couch playing against the oriental rug, the 19th century paintings and the needlepoint pillow. I like to think that Hemingway would be comfortable drinking his scotch here.

The shotgun shell is from a 20 gauge. (Shown here to indicate scale)
