2011, Oil on canvas, 48"w x 36"h

This piece represents a clock. It is made of 12 squares (12″ x 12″ each) and can be moved to show the numbers 1-12. Only one number at a time is visible in its entirety. It is meant to represent the complexities of the day. The woven canvas and the parts of unrecognizable numbers signify that although everything has its own time, they are also linked to another. You are not meant to see the whole picture at once, and everyone will put the pieces together differently. I show the number two because it is the time of day I started the painting.
