  • Description

    Revolver
    "A tear shape revolves clockwise to make a face. The canvas revolves the other way and jams into the sides of the frame. The face floats in space, alert and cautious, drifting dangerously close to the edge. It might ignite like a zippo lighter."
    Julian Hooper to Ron Brownson, 30 October 2019
