The Presidio Collection
The Presidio Collection began with Shanan fixating on four seemingly unrelated images – a French Art Deco rug, the Cabrillo Bridge spanning the highway in downtown San Diego, eucalyptus trees, and a Gauguin painting that hung in the stairwell of her reform school. While working with and painting these subjects, she gradually realized their significance to her childhood in the suburbs of Southern California.
“This collection is a visual interpretation of my emotional experience growing up in San Diego during the 80s and 90s,” Shanan says. “When I visit home now, it feels completely different, so in this collection I wanted to capture that sense of a time and place lost.”
The Presidio Collection is offered as custom wallpaper, textiles, and rugs.
