The artist, best-known for large-scale earthcastings like the three rings entitled Gyre at the nearby NC Museum of Art, plans to incorporate several large, mural-sized paintings into the White Gold exhibition. Here, Sayre prepares a flat white paint which is later tarred-over and revealed again in pieces, in part by scraping and gouging through the tar.
