Criptic Critic Conscience and Known for it

Humiliated, a painting show by Tao Wells, at Gambia Castle, September 2010

Ten stretched used bed sheet combinations over improvised wooden frames. Five made in plain air compositions of the mid section of Mt Taranaki, as viewed from a hill by the beach in Fitzroy, New Plymouth. Near where the I lived.  Five left plain, in response to the stretched sheets themselves taking over in importance. The series was a response to my need to find employment, earn a crust, so going out into the public 'market' I tried to create value I could afford.
