Wallpaper is a 72-foot piece completed over the course of several days. This composite of small drawings and paintings combines such thematic elements as chairs, gold, self-portraits, nose rings, and abstract expressions (sometimes explained with accompanying words). Also throughout the piece are various notes and small reflective sketches that retell recent occurrences. There is no riddle or narrative to decipher. Rather, Wallpaper is simply a long painting resembling the artist’s sketch book and revealing a reflective exercise of examining his own stream of consciousness as a visual representation: A prose painting.
