Layers of paint transcend two dimensions and become sculptural, shedding the framework of the canvas or wall mount. These flexible yet delicate stacks become objects. As materials they have a life of their own, often bending or curling in unpredictable ways, and are subject to the same slow drift as the crust of the earth. As paintings on painting on paintings, they both conceal the gestures of the past and hermetically preserve them.
