This piece is an experiment, an examination of modern buying habits. The most common shopping experience of the past few decades is one that involves almost no tactile sensation. Even the notion that shopping for food should consider and include taste and smell is now treated as being slightly eccentric. To this end, I have prepared this canvas with the minimum of human contact. It was attached to a wire and dipped entirely in white paint, then acrylic was dripped from a height. I hope for this shrink-wrap to fail entirely in its expected task.
This piece may not be framed without extensive damage to the paint. Similarly, the nature of the painting may preclude attaching a hanging wire - the painting should still hang with no problems. However, if an enhancement of the meaning were to be worth some small damage, this can be easily undertaken.
