This work is comprised of 13 pieces of steel that have been painted and then had printed images on perforated vinyl applied to the painted steel. Each strip is 2 inches wide and varying heights. This piece comes with a template that makes installation very simple.

Each strip of this work is a photo I have taken from all over the world. In this piece there are images from mountain tops, lakes and islands from places as far away as Osaka, Denmark and Taiwan. These pieces function for me like memory... a large complicated and colorful abstract picture filled with strips of tiny specific moments.
