The Last Things

Paintings on plastic and 3 dimensional objects.
This was my first solo exhibition in New York and the first exhibition of Colin De Land's Vox Populi Gallery on East 6th Street.
I met Colin through Joe Davis, a very under-appreciated artist of that period in New York. Both of us had studio spaces in the Times Square area building at 233 West 42nd Street.
The gallery space was not in the best of shape and with no money for a complete renovation, I made the suggestion to just patch and then clear coat the existing walls.


Installation images, Vox Populi Gallery, September 1984.
In all cases, the text you see in the painting is the title. Some panels are in groups (the group of 4 is actually called "The Last Things") Each panel is either 6ft. x 4ft. 6in. or 4ft. 6in. x 6ft., oil (Varathane) on clear vinyl streched over bent electrical conduit.
