dated 12/20/73 (on the verso)

unique manipulated SX-70 polaroid

4¼ by 3½ in.

10.8 by 8.9 cm.

Executed in 1973.

This work is in very good condition overall. The polaroid is hinged at the upper corners of the reverse to the backing board. Under raking light, surface inconsistencies and a few scattered surface scratches are visible, likely inherent to the artist's manipulation of the surface of the polaroid. Framed under Plexiglas.


Framed dimensions: 9½ by 9¼ in. (24.1 by 23.5 cm.)
