Blue and Red. Found offset lithograph prints. Edition # ?, 2012.
I’ve used this motif (or more accurately, I guess, composition) in a few past pieces. Here and here. I’ve been thinking about this so much that I’ve been seeing objects everywhere - thrift stores, department stores, antique stores, on TV, the internet - that also contain this same visual composition of a pair of objects, one blue on the left and one red on the right, almost identical. Their similarities mimic their differences which are so minute they almost become indistinguishable. Blue and red, left and right, veins and arteries.
I’m planning an exhibition of this body of work in the Spring, titled Blue and Red. It will hopefully have a two-color Risograph zine as a catalog.
