When I visited Fred Mogubgub Jr. in his high rise apartment by the airport during the summer of 2002 he had his father's paintings stashed everywhere.
They were behind the refrigerator, in every closet, under the drop ceiling.
Dispersed amongst these canvases were the fragmented pieces of "Virginia's Garden", a painting which was planned to hang in the World Trade Center. Upon completion it was over 750 square feet. A curatorial change at the World Trade Center scuttled the exhibition there.
The New York Times claimed it amongst the world's largest paintings. Mogubgub claimed it as the biggest.
Fred Jr. had it dissected and rolled up in scattered corners. More, he said, was in storage in New Jersey.
In addition to tomatoes and zucchinis, there are portraits of the artist's children, tarot inspired symbology and other cosmic iconography.
I only manage to snap a few images on my Pentax K-1000. They hint at what a complex layering the painting must have been.
