Exhibition Description

For his first one-person show, Bark exhibted elevel works. Each was 4′ square and made from polyester resin and pigment between glass and masonite. While the paint was wet, Bark shot BBs at the work, causing the glass to crack and the underlying paint to move. Resulting variations in the thickness of the paint allowed the brown masonite underneath to modify the tint.
