Paiement's studio in Bath, Maine is in a historic building built in the mid 1850's. In the summer of 2006, a part of the building was renovated. Large pieces of a tin ceiling, quite rusted and patinaed, were tossed out and left behind the building. Paiement confiscated them and started cutting them up with tin shears and bolting them onto a large birch door panel he had laying around. At one point in the process, he turned the panel upside down and Paiement 'saw' a warrior emerge from the shapes. Having recently seen brutal media images of the aftermath of war in the middle east and having his only son about to turn 18 and eligible for the military, Paiement saw an opportunity to make his own anti- war statement. Two years later, what he calls his Entropy Series was completed.
