24"x24"x2" Mixed Media (acrylic, stencils, hardware, Plexiglas) on wood panel
As a part of the Text series, FXD is a truncation of "Fixed". The underlying metaphor is "industry", and like Anachronistic Time Inversion, incorporates video footage of manual skilled labor (welding, carpentry, ironwork). The piece is 'fixed' in the sense that it was continuously in a state of revision or repair, then fixed in final form. All works of art in a sense are in a state of being "fixed" until committed to some final stage. All the "tools" used (such as stencils) were incorporated right into the work.
