CROCODILE WRESTLING (ALL EVIDENCE OF MAN REMOVED)
c-print: 121.9 by 180 cm. 48 by 71 in.
frame: 135.5 by 192.5 cm. 53⅜ by 75¾ in.
Executed in 1993.
Unexamined out of the frame. This work is in very good condition. The sheet is stapled to the backing board at intervals along the upper and vertical edges, and undulates slightly. Close inspection reveals some minor skinning at the lower left corner tip, and a small tear at the lower right corner tip, which are associated with the artist's use of staples. Extremely close inspection reveals some fine superficial scratches, most notably to the areas of darker pigment.
