Process of a Painting with Chris Thorson

Thorson sheds light on her process in the following section and in her image captions, “My work plays off conventions of trompe l’oeil and the readymade, and it tests the boundaries between what we overlook and what we esteem. I’m currently working on an ongoing series entitled Bro Palace that depicts dirty socks. At the end of the day, I take off my socks and throw them on the floor. I’ve become interested in the aesthetics of this: I like the socks’ undulating forms, their stains and wear patterns, and the ‘compositions’ they make with one another on the rug.
