This piece is part of my "Numerical Value System" series. For this series, I devised a painting system in which values of gray were assigned a number value and arranged on a hexagonal surface. The system was laid out with masking tape, then hand-painted, and finally, the tape was removed. The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.
