Caution Combustible

On view at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (south entrance).

Caution Combustible - created with Mark Mcquiling and North East High School

We view our artwork as collaborations with Joseph Mallord William Turner’s painting, The Burning of the Houses of Parliament*. Our work began as simple tracings from digital reproductions of the painting, but quickly turned into something very much our own. Artists chose their own aspects of the painting in which to interact with and manipulate. We transferred our drawings onto foam printing blocks to mix and match into final compositions (printed on drywall). The incision in the wall is a combination of four drawing fragments.
