The Naga, 2014

This piece was an experiment using acrylic wall paint and pigmented pen.

It was also a preparation for the installation in Vientiane, Laos, which looks nothing like this.

Velvet Installation, 2012

This is the first wall installation that I did.  It was time for me to change the way I carried out my ideas, harking back to the original wall pieces I did in 1971 at CalArts using velvet tubing.

It was becoming too difficult to store all my work so I wanted to move in a direction where I used the same medium repeatedly in different contexts.

It was a good idea.

It didn’t work out that way.
