Condition:

This work is in very good condition. The right vertical edge of the sheet is deckled and there are artist's pinholes to the uppper left and right corners, inherent to the installation method, and a further to the lower left corner. The lower right corner is torn. Extremely close inspection reveals some light rub and handling marks in isolated places to the sheet. All surface irregularities, including scuffs where the sticks meet the sheet, are in keeping with the artist's choice of media and found materials.
