The cardboard is undulating slightly, as is consistent with the nature of this material. There are various seams running throughout the work where the pieces of cardboard have been joined. The largest seam runs horizontally across the middle of the work. Please note that there are several surface marks and creases visible throughout. This is inherent to the work and appears to be the artist's intent.There are various areas throughout where the surface of the cardboard is be lifting/flaking off from the cardboard and there are consequential areas of surface loss (acrylic, tar and cardboard). Some these areas are more stable than others. This is in line with the artist's practice.There are several puncture marks to all four corners. 'AB II II. 2010 . 2015' is written with carbon pencil on the reverse. Please note that this work is not framed.
