Overview

60'' x 72'' x 10'' Stainless steel and oil.

Goals

I was inspired by some of the paper relief work done by Henri Matisse. The title Ham, Bacon, and Eggs was given by my daughter. It is not in the conference room of the headquarters of Providence Hospital in Seattle, WA.

Process

My concept was to create a composition of swirling forms. I wanted it to be very colorful and have a lot of texture in the paint. The original maquette measured 10'' x 8''. It was made of aluminum, rivets and acrylic paint.
