The constructed paintings I call "slices of art" are wedges of famous paintings that are inspired by and include the frame. The "greatest hits" are an accumulation of slices of well-known paintings by a particular artist juxtaposed together in a rectangular composition. The "inside-outs" feature the frame more than the previous work to the extent that the image area attracts the eye less than the frames do.

The "tilted images" (2005-6) are an attempt to violate the traditional picture plane by distorting well known masterpieces so they seem to recede back into the illusionistic picture space and frame behind the imaginary 'glass wall' situated at the actual frame.
