An over-painted museum shop merchandising of a sunflower motif by Vincent van Gogh, functions as the basis for this composition. The over-painting serves as an under-painting that loops behind expressionist brushwork, while being even more obscured by paint. There is no hierarchy of representation, no differentiation among appropriated images, abstract gestures and graphic patterns.
