Autumn 1988

Leaf, light, dye destruction print

30.5 x 30.5 cm / 12 x 12 "


The piece Tear, Autumn 1988 shows a single, life-size leaf within the expanse of a white, hand-painted wooden frame. The small scale and humble nature of this work signaled a distinctive artistic stance, one that prized quiet sincerity.
