In 2017, I started photographing motorcycle covers in Brooklyn and Manhattan. The undulating forms seemed to carry everything painting could. To rethink whether painting was necessary given the abundance of these forms, already out in public, I began using motorcycle covers as material. The covers are altered by hand-sewing, digital photography, and the addition of velvet, silk, and nylon. Some of the covers are stretched like paintings; most are installed loose.
