Art Description

Painting: Enamel, Latex and Wood on Canvas and Wood.

This work was made by stretching the canvas directly over a wooden pallet. An object once used to transport goods and building materials is now supporting the painted canvas, adding weight to the piece, both physically and conceptually when we think of the history of the pallet and its relation to industry and transportation.

"I came across a couple of old exhibition catalogs of her's from two shows she had a Stux gallery, somewhere between 1989-92. I was so impressed by her work, I didn't understand why I hadn't heard of her before. The last work I found she made was in 1998 I think. I guess she just stopped making art, which is such a hard idea to understand, that someone who is dedicated to art could just stop. Anyways the "E" work is really just my way of saying thanks to her, as well as a sort of ode."
