Hotel Terminus

Hotel Terminus continues along trajectories found throughout artist Stephen Lapthisophon’s installations and collages. It weaves fragments of an everyday variety into a complex structural dialogue. Individual images are often altered and slightly transformed, as if lost or misfiled by our memory. Personal snapshots, fragments of text, newspaper clippings, corny bits of nostalgia, and a multitude of unidentified detritus are here collected together and organized into a visual treatise on knowledge and emotion.
