Quite a few of the new works in the Collected show explore the visual tension between the strictly photographic and the obviously painted. This image began as the lower half of another composition. After seeing the elements of the composition together I became convinced they'd be stronger when separated and introduced the table saw into the process.
Not surprisingly, when someone was joking with me last week about just cutting works in half to make more art for the show I had a hard time suppressing a laugh.
