125 KUB OR bullion



KUB OR
N°125-
15x15 cm  (aprox 6"x 6'" inches)
oil on gessoboard, made in Italy

I love packages' names.  And the French love bullion cubes.  For over two weeks this box has been sitting in my studio waiting for me to paint it.  The package seems like such an archaic design, something that was remarkable dozens of years ago.  There's nothing organic about it, no green — all primary.  I can just imagine a women wearing white gloves and a scarf, riding in a coupé thinking about how easy dinner will be because of her "golden cube"  — KUB OR.   She drops the cube in boiling water and dinner is served.  Sorry for the slightly out of focus photo. The rain falling like chains took the light from the sky today.
