Marian Goodman Gallery, New York Acquired from the above by the present owner
“I believe that in the indeterminacy of drawing—the contingent way that images arrive in the work—lies some kind of model of how we live our lives. The activity of drawing is a way of trying to understand who we are and how we operate in the world.”
This work is in excellent condition overall. The sheet is hinged on the reverse intermittently to the backing board. There is a soft undulation to the sheet. There are artist pinholes in all 4 corners and to the center top edge. The top and bottom edges of the sheet are deckled. There is scattered stray media to the sheet due to the artist's working method. Under close inspection, there is some minor, scattered adhesive residue to the perimeter of the sheet and an accretion to the center, upper right portion of the sheet. Framed under Plexiglas.
