This painting was based on a series of collages. I started with one piece consisting of several cutouts placed randomly on a single piece of paper. I photographed it, removed one of the pieces and took another photograph of the piece. I repeated the process of removing a single piece and photographing the result. Each photographed piece represented a stage, and this painting is a reproduction of one of the stages.
