ANACHRONISTIC TIME INVERSION (2011)
30x30 mixed media assemblage on board

A conceptual piece about the layers of time, with recent layers inverted to lower layers. An upside-down digital clock was originally incorporated, but has now been replaced with a digital picture frame that can be loaded with various images, again placed upside-down.

The target is an homage to the Jasper Johns Targets, the letters 'OOT' to Ed Ruscha (OOF). '6-2-11' is actually a title from a piece of music based on melodic motifs built on a series of intervals of a 6th, 2nd and 11th, but serves as a future date painted in stencil letters on the 'oldest' layer. The finish date is post-dated 2-6-11 to play off the 'inversion' theme. (The work was officially 'finished' 1/3/11.) Since the work is suffused with chronological elements, modifications can be made at a later date, either by myself or other artists.
