Vitruvian Contractor Bag #9, 2018




The Vitruvian Contractor Bags are paintings on heavy-duty garbage bags, made by using my body as a printing press. I fold the plastic along myriad axes, multiplying the marks and impressions to build complex, anthropomorphic symmetries. The chemical binders in the acrylic paint combine with the micro-porous PVC forming a new amalgamated skin when one plastic merges with another.
