(Australia 04 Apr 1951 – )
76.5 x 55.5 cm image/sheet
Produced in New York, a response to a major blackout in New York in 1977. A spectacular event calling for explosive imagery borrowed from newspapers and my own snaps. Colour photocopying machines were newly available so the 'artist/reporter' was a collaged, colour photocopy fragment.
At the time I was doing screenprints exclusively. I gave it up not long after because of the toxicity of the solvents but also to pursue large scale installations and later painting.
