closeup

This work has yellowed and slightly warped.

This is paper, glued-up clippings of newspapers collected from all over the world, all dealing with "that ol' same thing." In Thai, Georgian, Hebrew, Arabic, English and Japanese. Displayed in The Nude Show 1993. Inspired by the maskmakers of Vittorio, Italy who make Carnevale masks in the spirit of 'arte povera' -- cheap materials. They paint over their newsprint paper laminates. Met when they visited Memphis as part of Memphis in May in 1991.
