Per Aspera Ad Astra, Diptych
Oil paint and wood dowels on shaped canvas
98 X 58 inches
2011

I’ll start by showing you my favorite painting, Per Aspera Ad Astra, translated from Latin as Through Hardship to the Stars. This is a nine-foot diptych made for a site-specific installation for Cassina, a high-end Italian furniture store in SOHO New York.
It’s oil paint with wood dowels on shaped canvas and mounts flat on the wall with no need for a frame.
