Alan Neider // Bag Paintings, PURPLE Bag


clothing, fabrics, paint

57 x 80 x 10 inches/145 x 203 x 25 cm

The title ‘Bag Paintings’ stems from the fact that I constructed a handbag and then sewed it into the picture plane on each painting. There are five paintings in this series. Clothing was sourced from thrift shops, found garments and pieces given to me. I am bringing a wire sculpture that has been wrapped with fabrics, yarn, ribbon etc. into the picture. My feelings then were that paintings need to come forward to some extent. These paintings are horizontally orientated and vary in size. They hang from grommets.
