This work is in very good condition. The sheet is hinged verso to the backing board in two places on the upper edge and the vertical edges are slightly deckled. There are creases throughout the composition which appear to be original. Close inspection reveals a few minute, faint and unobtrusive media accretions in places. All other surface irregularities are likely to be in keeping with the artist's working process.

“A restless search for meaning is already visualised within the paintings, photographs, and works on paper that constitute the artist’s nuanced engagement with the question of how to make a picture”
