Description

The process of stretching paper with water and gum tape creates a permanent tension in the surface, causing it to buckle. When this work is on the wall it begins to undo the functions of wall linings such as wallpaper or the paper facing on gib board; which are meant to create seamless surfaces for interior decoration. This work speaks to Picasso’s paper collages with their incorporation of wallpaper to signify flatness.
Commission: $150 per square meter
