The Large Glass Is Stripped Even, 2013

title: Fig. 016 “The Large Glass Is Stripped Even” material: JPEG size: a4 year: 2013

Based on the cracks of 'The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even' (1915-1923) by Marcel Duchamp

"The composition's most dominating feature is the series of spider web cracks, running diagonally from the top right to bottom left of the Bride's Domain, and in an almost figure eight from the top left to bottom right of the Bachelors' Domain forming flowery, flowing designs. Neither cracks nor paint disrupt the right, central plane, which is devoid of decoration, and around which the action of the art plays out. These occurred when the piece was being moved from its first exhibition, and after effecting the repair, Duchamp decided he admired the cracks: an element of chance that enhanced what he had done intentionally, following the flow of energy in the work's composition."

The cracks are now rotated, everything is now on the same level!
