Polaroid paintings

Around 1990 when I was living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, I would snap pictures on an old Polaroid camera, using expired film bought at discount. I walked around New York City capturing what caught my eye, and using the overexposed and discolored prints as inspiration for large paintings on paper. The large pieces are 70×60 in.. and the smaller pieces are 35×30 in. They are a mix of watercolor, acrylic and gouache, with heavy gesso borders painted on top to simulate the thick paper frames of a polaroid.
