Polyvinyl acetate, pigments, acrylic, acrylic gesso, ink, graphite, and silkscreen print on unprimed cotton canvas.
“In a new series of collages passages of Wittengstein’s notoriously fragmented philosophical notes on color appear taped to the surfaces flanked by silkscreened images of a Modernist house in Silver Lake, Los Angeles and seemingly unrelated photographic images.
