"Supposedly Brice Marden's transition from monochromes to line paintings was rooted in a cocaine addiction. As the story goes, he stopped painting for a year after quitting coke because he also had to quit smoking weed, something he thought he couldn't paint without. When he returned to the canvas he wasn't painting monochromes, but squiggly lines." (Interrupted drawing of Brice Marden doing coke), 2013. Graphite on paper, laser print, masking tape.
