A painting of the artist Wade Guyton that I saw at the newly inaugurated Sotheby's New York, drove me to use an old xerox copy, long stored at my to-think-about archive. My intention with this piece was to explore the use of a technologically fabricated image, a lost mistake-copy once found in a copy shop, randomly produced, and to which I had no attachments but the beauty I saw in it. I was interested in using an uncontrolled starting point to think freely about a new composition, without having a particular narrative in mind.
