Oil on canvas 72 x 70 inches Painted in 2005 Provenance: Private collection, Los Angeles This lot is under temporary exportation and is subject to import tax (EU). The banal topic of laundry pops up in various ways and at different times throughout Thorson’s practice. This laundromat scene draws the viewer in with it’s detail, juxtaposing the black and white lines of the machines and floor tiles with the almost abstract swirl of colour clothes in the machines, and the floral wallpaper that unevenly borders the top of the canvas.
