Condition Report

This work is in good condition overall. There is light general wear to the work. The tape at each turning corner is loose and there is minor lifting to the tape on the upper right and lower left corners on the face of the work. There are some minor scuffs and faint scratches to the Plexiglas, visible under close inspection. There is a minor accretion along the left edge. One of the yellow paper elements is loose within the Plexiglas. There are some adhesive remains and areas of rubbing to the paper, likely inherent to the artist's chosen working method and materials.
