These paintings were made through a process of pressing the faces of canvases (face-planting) in to my studio floor.  Pressure was applied to the backs of paintings.   The floor was the stage where wet paint set-up to transfigure.   Paint dripped through the foor, through the cracks.  This was not preferred by the tenant below.  A raised platform had to be constructed, a stage with a tarp undreneath to catch the drips.  These canvases capture the trace of peformance and tranference of studio activity.
