Two photographs with no exact dates other than their age and subjects. And a particularly wonderful aesthetic notability hard to pass up as a point of view or “A Vista”

September 8th / Todays Post

A murky drawing with floaty collage bits combined in a carefully structured composition to make a compilation of no real intent, other than formal aesthetic play. Enjoy or poo-poo.  2017

August 17th / Todays Post(s)

2 Xerox prints from the mid-1970s.  Xerox’s of 40 years ago had a grainy gray quality that was ideal for hand coloring with Prismacolor pencils. A title, a signature, and a date made each one into a little mono-print. In the “Tools of the Trade” print, the lines fore and aft are from each tool depicted, including cuts for the X-Acto knife and dried adhesive from the glue stick. Also in the grouping is an early Pentel Pen, and the ubiquitous, all purpose Rapidograph Pen

August 1st / Todays Post

The dean of so many great Detroit photographers:  +Bill Rauhauser 1914-2017+   An exhibition poster we did in the early 80’s, using his photo of his camera, tilting it on a angle and incorporating it’s little arrows and tic marks into my then current “connotative typography” practice.  This was also the reason for the mix of bold and medium letters within the words and blocks of words, meant to reflect the idea that a photographic likeness is composed of the grouping of lighter and darker shapes and forms into a fixed order necessary to make it a “readable” image.

1921 Laszlo Molholy-Nagy collage at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, followed by photograph of three bits of tape found on sidewalk in front of CalArts theater building door. Two small masterpieces in different contexts, one created and one arbitrary, showing a perfect spacial relationship between 3 geometric forms.

Top collage made with tissue paper drawings and a few bits and lines, followed by second collage made with more conventional found material: from current one-a-day sketch book, 2017
