Sample 1

date > February 2010
media > peeled paint on tissue paper
size > 40 x 40 cm app.
status > for sale


> The top of the Heals window paintings did not fit onto the canvases I had ordered. I transferred the last pieces of peeled off painting onto tissue paper used at Heals for packaging.

> This emphasizes the materiality of the paint, separated from its usual support of the canvas but still containing an image. I enjoy the contrast between the expressive colours, the marks of the brush with the neutral, unwilling support of the tissue paper. The framing (see below) seems to further emphasizes the fragile union of tissue paper and paint.
