A few years ago, I became interested in the possibilities of recycling oil paintings by peeling the paint off its canvas and using the resulting chips for drawing and sculpture projects. These colorful, textured chips, once free of their ground, can be reconsidered and repurposed for new compositions. In this show, Humpty Dumpty II, I'll be improvising with these chips to explore new assemblage patterns within a small space.
