This acrylic painting on linen is one of a series of 10 that the artist developed from a painting that incorporated a photograph she took of a flatbed truck used for transporting cars. The element of interest on the truck was a sort of ladder with soft-cornered rectangular openings. She extracted all but the ladder structure from the photo, punched out the openings, and digitally superimposed the image on a painting in progress.
That digital montage became the model for the original painting. Each successive painting took on its own identity completely apart from the source materials, with the soft-cornered rectangles and the palette being predominant constants.
The 10 paintings were exhibited together in an exhibition entitled "Transitive" held at the American University of Paris in the spring of 2013.
