Object detail

Colour codified print of the Vogue List of Contributors page from May 2010. Every number and letter of the alphabet is assigned a different colour and the letters and numbers on the page are replaced with multi-coloured dots.

Artist Statement: "Fashion magazines are the source materials for my series color codification dot drawings. I make each piece on a sheet of frosted Mylar laid over a magazine page. After assigning a color to every letter in the alphabet (numbers are grayscale, 0=white and 9=black), I apply tiny dots of paint over every character on the page. Each drawing I make has a different color codification, and therefore a different palette. The resulting painting is a legible blur of dots in the form of the article's layout - like a system of Braille for the color inclined. These two paintings utilize the "List of Contributors" page from Vogue; I love the way the centered type in this page's layout creates a pattern resembling a Rorschach inkblot."
