‘Upholstered Graphics’ derived from the possibility of a shape to host another space, how a shape can refer to another space or represent another place.

A good example for this can be found in cathedrals and the commissioned fresco paintings inside them.

Sometimes the interior has such specific architectural features that it frames the site-specific artwork in a peculiar way.

While being both invisible and present at the same time, another narrative is conveyed when these two elements coalesce.
