ANARCHY IN ORDER
The predetermined result of the commercially bought Paint-by-Numbers (the antithesis of ‘fine’ art) is altered by randomly re-assigning different numbers to the colors. Each piece is one of a finite edition of the possible number/color combinations.  The consequential tonal breakdown of the image switches the viewers attention to the process of the painting itself and the original purely decorative function is subverted. This approach has been expanded to include paintings with switched paint sets
