Object Detail

A mixed media assemblage painting on un-stretched canvas. It is one half of a diptych which hangs in totem above the painting 'Emotional Emergency - State Control'. The painting is in three uneven horizontal panels. The two top panels (the top half of the painting) are stapled together with nails to create a scar. This top half is treated in lighter tone than the bottom which is stained in tones of grey. This bottom panel has a thick stripe of overlaid highly textured cracking paint where the canvas is folded at the top. The ripped and torn un-stretched canvas creates an uneven edge. The painting is hung via two wooden batons to which it is nailed to.

1/2 of dyptich (hangs above acc# 1105, vertically in a format the artist describes as totem)
