Glen Kaufman

A few years ago I purchased a piece of art by Glen Kaufman, titled Jofukuji Kawara. I had seen it years before at an exhibition and loved it, but couldn't afford it at the time.

This weekend we finally hung it in our new home. We've moved a couple of times since the purchase, and, really never uncrated it until now.

I'm not qualified to describe Mr. Kaufman's work accurately, but I believe it is fairly described as a tapestry. The technical description is a "photo collage, screen printing, and impressed metal leaf on custom-woven silk fabric." Be that as it may, it reminds me of the view of roof tops in Japan from one of the bullet trains, and captures a moment of time.
