2004/2017 Sandwich/Bandage Section Paintings

In 2004 I made small works called 'section paintings' which were small versions or small chunk sections of my large works. These pieces are fueling my new work today, 'sandwich/bandage section paintings'. In these works, paint is sandwiched between a wooden support structure and the canvas. The canvas is also applied to the paint and acts as a bandage. This series is consistent with a mending process that I use throughout my work, as well as reversing traditional processes of making a painting.
