Media: acrylic paint, walnut ink, Japanese black ink, turmeric pigment, graphite dust painting, xylene ink transfer, and other media, wax and graphite rubbing from Bennett Park, site of General Washington’s Fort during his major defeat by the British in 1776 when the Fort bearing his name was captured.
A story of failure, and collapse, featuring icons of American life sunk into oblivion, an ironic context of lyrics from the anarchic British 1980’s punk band Gang of Four invades the pages much like the British invaded New York and Fort Washington in 1776
Mystical lyrics from the British band Radiohead written by songwriter and vocalist Thom Yorke travel through the abstract horizon of this delicate little book.
