Louise, acrylic on multiple cardboard panels, 2005.

This painting was done expressly for Jeffrey Scott Holland's Clowns in Love solo exhibition in NYC in 2005. In the catalog this entry bore the following caption:

"Oh, Louise.... dear sweet Louise... sniff... I can see your scowling face everywhere I look.... I can close my eyes and still smell your cotton candy and popcorn fragrance..... "

That same year, JSH noted the following on his website about the piece: "This was done on 16 panels of thin cardboard haphazardly combined *after* each panel was painted separately, so it's a miracle that anything aligns at all. This deliberately disjointed patchwork technique is one that I'll be using on many more large-scale pieces in the following year."
