Airplanes  In the late 1970s, Rosenfeld broke into new territory, eschewing the painted canvas, and applying mixed media to stripped stretchers, with carpet tacks. His brief romance with things aeronautical produced a series of works heralding the expansion of the small aircraft industry and its feats and failures. But more important, this series grew into what became probably Rosenfeld’s most unique body of work—the Rag, Wire and Crushed Can works that followed.
