Stephen Shore (American, born 1947), U.S. 97, South of Klamath Falls, Oregon. July 21, 1973, Chromogenic color print
i honestly feel like this stephen shore print. my mind is the mountain that could be in this landscape but it isn't - it is far removed and a fictive work of someone's hand and put here. it's optical and it fools with your perception. from far away - it could fool you. you'd think it'd belong - coexist. it doesn't.
i'm researching mira schendel for my final paper and these early felt tip pen drawings are intensely vibrating to the confusion i feel. where is the instructional manual?
