Peeled Paintings

I think I'll call these Peeled Paintings.

I paint onto store bought canvases, still with the plastic wrap on them. Then I let them dry until the surface is tough and then separate the paint from the plastic wrap support. I transfer it onto the canvas after I peel the wrapper off the back of the paint.

I happened upon this via a recent painting repair, the monads I was excising and replacing seemed to be perfect candidates for a transplant.

Skinning. Flesh. Carne. Carnitas.


Maybe I should instead call this type of thing Carnitas?

(Henry Taylor had a hand in this one early on. I was showing him what I was doing and he daubed it a few times to feel the power.)
