Micro-Adjust Painting | 2013 | acrylic on canvas | 36”x 36” x 3”

Micro-Adjust Painting, uses engineering to solve a minor background problem with the display and conservation of paintings – they sometimes warp on their stretchers. This piece proposes a solution to the problem that is so overwrought that is necessitates cutting out a large portion of the surface of the image to allow access to the canvas’ attitude adjustment apparatus. Any warp can be quickly adjusted out by spinning the threaded turnbuckles that attach to the painting’s central mounting bracket. Micro-Adjust Painting is mounted to the wall with a single central screw to allow for the fastest and most efficient installation possible.
