The drop cloths in this series were part of a professional house painter’s tool kit. After decades of use they were stiff and heavy with paint and removed from service. Rather than see the canvas wasted, their owner offered them to the artist—one painter to another.


Following a thorough cleaning, the drop cloths were assessed for the harmony of their seams, folds and wrinkles with the patterns of paint spills and color.

Once each 12 x 15 foot canvas was sectioned according to its naturally formed compositions, it was determined which pieces were strongest as a single entity, and which were better coupled with other sections. The drop cloth compositions were then integrated into the artist’s method of construction and painting. In a real sense the resulting art was a collaborative effort between the painter and his material.
