“All she needs is a pat(ch) on the back” Cotton thread, rubber, batting and vintage frame. 2015

I was recently approached by a dear old friend from art school days, to create a work for him and his partner.

I appreciate it to get commissions, but on the otherhand it’s the most difficult for me to do.  (I enjoy it when they say that you can do whatever you like, but on the other hand you hope that they can relate to it on some level)

I havent seen this friend in ages . The last time I saw him was at a Tori Amos concert, I decided to listen to her music while planning what to do…The song “Spark’ from her Choirgirl hotel cd, started playing and I love the lyrics: “She’s addicted to nicotine patches”.  I said to myself, well I’m addicted to rubber patches…and voila…an image started to form in my mind.

In doing a commission I hope to get a pat on the back…and say for instance that the person I create the work for, doens’t like it…then I’ll at least have a patch…..
