"This work was done first at the Larry Becker Gallery in Philadelphia. The panels are vinyl. But the panels are not really the painting. The painting originally consisted of two walls that joined in a right angle, so the painting curved. Here it’s on two opposite walls, and the actual painting consists of the wall itself- echoed in the second wall. The panels are part of the composition of the painting and in each panel there are many nuances which are apart of the composition of the elements. The panels are similar but each is unique."
