Did you know?

This large-scale work is actually constructed of two canvas panels that sit flush together.


The physicality and energy of this painting is characteristic of Lee Lozano's work in the early 1960s. During this period, she devoted many paintings and drawings to tools. As seen here, Lozano's tools have an anthropomorphic quality, expressing the artist's broader interest in the relationship between the body and the machine.
