K.O.S. stands for Kids of Survival, South Bronx teenagers with whom Rollins collaborated in the 1980s. This is a small example of the larger group works they created, layering pages of books with painting, often abstract, then making grids of those pages. For a time, their work was a mainstay of both activist-artist collectives and blue-chip galleries. Rollins died at the end of last year.
