This piece and Sugar, Tray, Canada marked the moment when I realized I wanted to reconstruct all the torn pieces into their 40″ x 30″ original size. The images needed to be separate but still relate to one another. This piece marked the first understanding of connection among the images from this ground, that they were actually puzzle pieces.
Some panels were missing from the 2019 ground painting, so I made new ones. I drew this tray across two panels to play with a sense of separation – this one is warm to the other panel’s cool.
