An experimental work. At this time, I was doing a lot of assemblages with found and discarded materials. Some of these materials were signs that had aged and were deteriorating. I think this painting deals with how the psyche becomes layered with meanings. There is an absurdity and an entropic quality in the way the vessels are painted. Finally, it seems appropriate that a giant hand slaps someone in the face. Maybe it's there to remind you to snap out of it and be in the moment.
