Crushed Spray Cans/Mixed Media In 1989, Rosenfeld found next to a graffiti-painted wall, some spray cans and a white glove with paint on it. Outside, in Sarah Roosevelt Park, in front of his building, he flattened the carefully-selected spray cans with a hammer and let the paint come out. He then nailed them to the stretcher bar. The spray cans joined the wire. He used the found white glove with the wire and the cans, and made a piece called Graffiti Man. Soon the wire was pushed out by the cans. In 1990 he started to draw with graphite on the wood panels attached to the stretcher. His 1990 series of self-portraits in graphite on paper found their way into these larger works. He made a number of spray can pieces with drawing on them, including Hung Up Running Shoe and Man and Sneaker Man, both of which incorporated pieces of a discarded Adidas brand sneaker which he found on the marquis of his building, below his front window. Later works in this series were inspired by Iraq War I, which utilized, in addition to the crushed spray cans and drawings, small oil paintings of camouflaged figures, wire and dog tags, such as in Channel Zero, Dog Tags and Watching the War on Television. Like the Rag works that preceded them, these series were clearly in synch with the “New Wave” (also called “Neo-Expressionist”) movement at the time.
