Honor Fraser Gallery, Los Angeles Acquired from the above by the present owner
This work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
Originally [Companion] was in Hong Kong for Harbour City. When I was invited to do the piece, I went and saw the site. And immediately I was like, 'God if I had to sit out here, I would just be mortified if this many people walked past me.' And that’s how that pose came.
This work is in very good condition. There are minor surface irregularities on the arms, hands and occasionally throughout the work. Close inspection reveals minor media accretion.
