The later paintings are concerned with showing the history of their making. Each layer of paint leaves a ‘mark’ that relates to the previous layer. It is like a history of myself. The paintings are more monolithic in size. Each one is taller than me. Narrow masking tape is laid in geometric shapes that create drawing and layers of semi-transparent paint is added over each layer, followed by more tape. Gradually the drawing becomes combined with the paint. The paint itself is an acrylic transparent base that is shiny and has a lustrous texture. A very small amount of pure pigment is added. The depth of the layers on the paintings is shallow and the obvious visibility of the earliest lines varies according to the colour used.
The construction pipes were found on the prom at Los Boliches on the Costa del Sol in Spain, circa 1972. I placed them in position and photographed them.
