Iconometer #47 MoMA Fugue

Iconometer #47 is titled, MoMA Fugue,and it exemplifies how I use Iconometer as a tool for investigation and experimentation. I had the opportunity to create this piece while I was the Visiting Artist at the Paper Fox Printmaking Workshop at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. 

If you’re in the Appleton, Wisconsin area any time before May 7, 2017, a limited-edition version of this issue is on view as part of the “Selectionsfrom the Paper Fox Printmaking Collection” exhibition at Lawrence University’s Wriston Art Center Galleries.
Iconometer #47 is a serigraph that exists in two important states: as a small edition of signed and numbered prints and trimmed and folded to become an issue of Iconometer.

Key inspiration for this issue can be found in the research for my Liquid into My Skin project. It’s a series of installation and sculptural works that assemble photographic transparencies into visual mosaics. I’ll go into this project in more detail…
