A tendency is to make the processes in the studio into art--I guess that's a Bruce Neuman notion I've internalized. For me, support materials and tendencies in the studios, find ways into the work itself.

 Nauman made the following assumption: “If I was an artist and I was in the studio, then whatever I was doing in the studio must be art.

So reference and support materials--xeroxes, postcards, painter's tape, (even studio furniture)- instead of being jumping off points, become the actual focus, and in some cases, the actual art.

Support materials, activities in studio:


painter's tape

resting paintings on chairs while re-arranging work on walls.
