Wilding Cran Gallery, Los Angeles Acquired from the above by the present owner
"Now I think it’s very important that art remains to be about ideas, but it shouldn’t be an either or battle between concepts versus painting. They can exist together. I guess when my school force fed us a conceptual education I reacted against it. I left school because it wasn’t teaching me anything."
This work is in very good condition overall. There is evidence of some wear and handling to the corners and edges resulting in a few, very minor losses and a few, minor surface scuffs along the perimeter. The surface texture and pigment application irregularities are consistent with the artist's working method and choice of medium. Under close inspection, there are a few, scattered surface accretions and some minor surface scratches. Only visible under very close inspection, there is evidence of a few, scattered, stable and unobtrusive areas of vertical pigment craquelure. Unframed.
