I Do Not Want To Live Here Anymore has over sixteen layers underneath its mortared surface. Underneath the surface are leaves, internet printouts and a great deal of words. The only words that remain in the final presentation are I do not want to live here anymore on the lefthand side of the canvas. These words link with the wall-like presentation of the rest of the canvas. I was not conscious that I wasn’t mortaring over those words until I finished the painting.
