I will also try the panels upside-down and turned different ways. I tried arranging the panels in a vertical format for this frottage and I like the contrast between the horizontal and the vertical grains in the wood. I will try this with the panels as well. Perhaps I will not be attaching spacers behind two of them, but attach the same spacers behind all three panels. It does set the piece off from the wall and cast shadows which function as a sort of frame.

The canvas could be lightly stained before the frottage is glued on. There is also the possibility of collaging other materials as well. I prefer to use restraint and to keep in mind the aesthetic of the unfinished.

I am also working on the spacers and the hanging system for "Curves" and the paperwork for shipping my work to AIB for the January residency.
