In The Box, a Fall 2014 series by Cai Xi Silver, enamel on canvas, broom as brush, 4 to 6 feet high (click to enlarge images.) Earlier stages of the process of some of these works (with mops and trowels as brushes) are at the Xi Cai (Cai Xi Silver) youtube playlist particularly for In The Box #1, #2, and #4. The pink splash underlying In The Box #4 happened in video clip 7. A close-up of the splash just after being done is in clip 8. In The Box #4 is enamel and paint can lid on canvas. One Afternoon ‘Wu Ji (Infinity Within)’ Series, below, is a collage of highlights and closeups from one October afternoon in Cai’s studio. The works are enamel on canvas, with mops, trowel and paintcan as brushes. These canvases were later transformed into the InTheBox series.
