Challenged Painter

Posted: May 10, 2008 in Page 3: Earlier Work

2005
Dimensions: 133 by 79, framed.
Media: Paint on wood panel, and sculpted wood frame.

The frame has been broken apart and put back together with fine screws–layer by layer when necessary. The wood panel (wall that the painter is working on), is grossly fractured but is being repaired by the painter. A simulated crack, drawn with pencil runs down and into the pencil lines that illustrate the hat, holding the head in suspension as the head itself is not attached to the body. The painter is sketched with pencil dug into the wood panel and secured with a transparent spray fixative.
