Brain Freeze (2009)
Materials: acrylic gel medium with graphic transfers off small, medium and the two larges of 7-11 Slurpee cups | Dimensions: 30′ X 8′
Process: The dot graphics off 7-11 Slurpee cups were painted over and connected with transparent acrylic gel medium. The dried gel medium was then peeled off each cup – it transferred the cup’s graphics onto it. The peeled sections of gel medium were then all connected together into large molecule-like forms and adhered to the gallery wall.
