Stucco, brick, wood planks, even marble walls all become battlefields. The graffiti artist
--with or without permission—marks his place. The person who comes later to re-claim
the wall and re-paint, called the buffer, never quite gets the wall back. And so the walls
provide layers of meaning: of longing, of claimed ownership, of loss. I create imagined
walls with their accumulated or erased layers of paint and collage... this wall has been through several layers of covering and re-covery.
