Does a painting have to happen on a canvas? In line with Rosalind Krauss’ writings on Sculpture in the Expanded Field and subsequent writings by Gustavo Fares on Painting in the Expanded Field, these sculptures can be regarded as ‘paintings’. Pigment (in the form of thread) is mixed together as paint would be. Each box is like a tiny precious moment held in time.
