I love these. Maybe it's the thought of their small size, but I also love the way the images are separated, disjointed but whole.

Thanks, Altoon. The motivation here was to make studies developing ideas for bigger paintings, but I am definitely interested in the miniature aspect, as well as in these things as objects in themselves.

I did a 1" = 1' miniature version in advance of my entire last solo show (at Pierogi, back in May). You can see the miniature and the real space juxtaposed here:

In that case the small paintings were just small models of existing paintings, rather than being new ideas, as these two are.
