Label TextThis piece is from a series in which the artist created custom, asphalt-like canvases made of painted gravel. He then imbedded gold necklace chains pressured into distorted lines into this surface, resulting in dynamic partterns of gold on black that resembles lightning strikes or abstract paintings.
