Measuring 21 x 20.25 inches, this oil painting on plexiglass was completed on the evening of July 2, 2015. Griz E Strüss named it in honor of Andrea Fraser, who, earlier in the day, gave a lecture to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago on the subjects of ambivalence, institution, vulnerability, and commodity.
The physical artwork was sold on July 18, 2015 to A.Mullins residing in Rota, Spain. Wherever possible, online images of the painting have been removed from public viewing. This is done as a gesture of gratitude to the patron and as an effort of the artist to emphasize the elite position associated with owning an original painting.
The act of erasure is offered as simultaneous evidence for and against the imminent extinction of the imagination.
