The body was a remnant of a peel-off pencil eraser painted with Wite-Out
, with hooks attached by a wire that also formed the loop for the line.
Frost's trademark, like McGee's liquor bottles, is a white frosting (forgive the pun) of elaborate signs and symbols--dots, arrows, spades, hearts, birdlike figures, and the like--rendered with a Wite-Out pen.
Frost lays down the Wite-Out in dense patterns in which individual letters and nonsensical words may occasionally be picked out; overall, this amalgam of letters, numbers, and symbols is fused into his own personal hieroglyphics.
The painting in the installation Soe Slaughter Surrender, with its shower of Wite-Out hearts, has an air of lovesickness; beneath it lies a pile of unstitched baseballs, like hearts emptied out in offering.
