enter the gallery is to face walls lined with large-scale wooden panels painted
various shades of blue. As paint drips down their surfaces and mingles with bold,
overlapping patches of pigment, other details begin to reveal themselves. Ragged scraps of black-and-yellow caution tape appear. Some panels have irregular edges, holes, and missing chunks; another panel seems unfinished, with an unpainted strip of wood visible at its base. The wood is warped, chipped, rotting. The imperfections add up.
