Howardena Pindell - from 1982... seperate sections are stitched together... you can see the stitching up close.
I'm forgetting the details, but I think this was made at a time when she was attempting to reclaim memories lost after being involved in an accident... the "clearings" have something to do with recording memories.
It's a check painting.... she painted all her old cancelled checks and took a hole punch to them. 1982.
Howardena Pindell was in High Times, Hard Times.... check out my label of "artists who were in High Times, Hard Times" that I've seen good work by since. MANY.
