Nine of Them  |  Corrugated Fields  |  Over and Under

I had been painting for several years in a strict geometric style: very flat, sharp edged forms, very linear.

Then, as chance would have it, I saw a show in which some works by Robert Rauschenberg were made from torn corrugated cardboard. The inspiration for me was almost instantaneous. Tearing off the paper that covers the corrugations gave me the perfect vehicle for transferring my interests at the time into a totally different medium.

The works shown here are examples among many others that I made over the months to follow. “Corrugated Fields” became a perfect culmination of the geometric painting I had been pursuing in the late ‘80’s and ‘90’s. and which I exhibited at Amos Eno Gallery in New York in 2004.
