PLEASE READ ABOUT THE DETAILS OF THIS ONE WORK, WHICH IS COMPOSED OF FOUR INDIVIDUAL STRETCHED CANVASES ON HEAVY DUTY WOOD.

This MULTIPLE-PANEL work consists of FOUR (4) primed canvases on wood stretchers. Please note that THIS WORK SHIPS TO THE BUYER IN FOUR INDIVIDUAL CARDBOARD BOXES, EACH BOX IS A DIFFERENT SIZE AND WEIGHT.

Each canvas measures 24 inches wide by 30 inches high. The depths vary as follows: 5 inches deep (lower right canvas); 3.5 Inches deep (lower left canvas), 6 inches deep (upper left canvas); and, 6.5 inches deep (upper right canvas). The buyer may elect to hang the works in one horizontal or vertical line; or, place the works two canvases above two canvases.

The overall measurements of this work as pictured here is 60 inches high by 48 inches wide by 6.5 Inches deep.

This complicated work took over eight years to complete; it uses natural objects (fox skull, possum skull, deer bones, skate-fish egg casings, rosebush twigs, Spanish moss), sewn onto the canvases. Additional materials include: gold-leaf; modeling paste, gesso, acrylic paint; threads; mother of pearl, and dried pigments. This work relates to a neurological condition I have called RSDS, also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome or simply, Chronic Pain. This was diagnosed over fifteen years ago, but I have had it for fifty years, since childhood. On top of this, my spine is deformed, causing even more pain.

Note: No animals were hunted or hurt to obtain the parts for this work. All animal parts were found in nature from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Cape May, New Jersey.
