This piece is one of the artist’s “recycled works,” part of an ever growing body of work created when the artist cuts up and "recycles" his previous work. In this particular piece, various mixed-media and painted works on paper have been transformed into a collection of fragments, which have then been rearranged and re-envisioned as new, or transformed, artworks. This technique is similar to that of mosaic, where smaller individual pieces are cut and fit together into a larger pattern or composition. The space between pieces reveals the ground on which the fragments are adhered, typically a prepared wood panel. This space becomes an integral part of the piece, not merely as a new visual element, but as it represents and records an ongoing narrative of artistic, and ultimately personal, evolution and growth. This artistic “recycling” process is open-ended and has been underway for over twenty years, and results in a variety of sculptural and three-dimensional installation works, in addition to two dimensional work. This process, and the evolving history of the fragments/resources used to produce the work, confer upon these works conceptual significance beyond their immediate visual characteristics, and engage viewers in the process itself, inviting the viewer/collector to intervene and “complete” an artwork, participating directly as collaborators in the larger body of work.
