(north wall) AS-IS (finale) Main Gallery, West Wall and rear entry For closer shots of the work see details
I include with the paintings on the west wall
those on the back of the entry panel. The paintings in these
installation shots can be examined more closely on the finale page, the
category just before this on the main page that documents work since
2000 www.thinkspeak.net/finale.html These shots give a sense of the retrospective in fairly close
detail though. (price list below)
This second to the bottom shot focuses on of knowledge of trees of death
, a piece that began in the early 80s
and was added to over time, you could say as editions. The center piece is a set of encyclopedias
bolted into place and glassed in - an ordinary object extracted from the time stream, held up as singularity.
Our gas stove requires matches to light so each time I lit one I dropped the spent match in an empty
apple juice jug. When it filled I added whatever invitation was current as a label, sealed it with a
waxed cork and covered the vulnerable seams with peace paint. The jugs provide wings for the
centerpiece. They could of course assume many other arrangements.
With this exhibit I pronounce the series complete. The lowest shot is of the west & north walls.
