"This is a short time-lapse video documenting the creation of my centerpiece painting for the Public Provocations show at the Carhartt Gallery in 2011. This was shown during ArtBasel on the Swiss/German border. The piece is titled "Portrait of a Dying Cockroach". I tried to paint this in the most graceful, beautiful way I could. It's based on some photos I took of an unnoticed roach on the spotless floor of the Margulies collection in Miami. This was from when Retna and myself painted a mural on the side of their building during the Miami ArtBasel a couple years ago. Something about painting that there during the Swiss ArtBasel seemed appropriate."
