54th Street Studio 2b

Another view of my 54th St. studio, circa 1999 (scan of polaroid), from the vault.

Are those huge things on paper pushpinned and hanging on the wall, or are they like wallpaper, glued to the wall? Is the coloring on the left printed or hand-colored?

It's office paper, taped on the back as shown here, only instead of folding it around a stretcher it's a giant sheet of paper that hangs loosely on the wall (two giant sheets, actually, a color one on the left and the B&W one on the right). Two pushpins hold up each piece. I really shouldn't post these pictures because there's no immediate way to get across how ephemeral and un-wallpaper-like the work is. [I wouldn't glue work on a wall because I'm too lazy to scrape it off later.] Even in person, people assume the back is lined with canvas. I appreciate your questions about this blasted body of work.
