Examples of extruded paintings can be seen in the first art gallery, second art gallery and third art gallery).



WHAT IS THE INVERTED EXTRUDED TECHNIQUE?

Henry usually extrudes the paint on a flat, smooth surface.  When the paint is dry, he peels the paint off the surface revealing the smooth underside.  He then mounts this inverted film on to the canvas.  This technique produces some very interesting effects and has lead to the appeal of several of Henry's most innovative and successful paintings (see Art Gallery).
