Untitled (Rice Canvas)

Regular price $900.00

Reclaiming a surface bearing scholastic outlines of the criminal case against her mother’s killer, Wiley enshrines the canvas in white rice. For the artist, white rice is a domestic material, not only as a comfort food but as a defensive force one builds in the safety of their home. Hardened, the rice is now one with the canvas, absorbing the physical and psychological marks beneath. It emerges a new form, rather than a protective shell.

Rice, adhesive, reclaimed canvas, aluminum frame
