“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. ย (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”. ย 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…..
