2016 - 2017 "Body Bags"  (rise and fall)

Plastic, thread, paint, wood, canvas

Since 1992, I continue to make plastic bag paintings. These are the "Dying Paintings, (body bags, rise and fall)". They are very much alive, but dying like everything else. Over a long period of time and depending of the care given to the piece the painted stripes will flake off and fall to the bottom of the bag which contains canvas, some excess paint and wood. I hope they age with beauty.
