Anonymous Steel Worker - RAQS, 2007
Acrylic Ink on Arches 88 paper
50” x 72”
This limited edition is inspired by the 2007 installation, Time Book. A sheet of stainless steel hangs from the beam with a silk screened orange image of a sculpture made by a steel worker. “We are most interested in the texture of memory. How it is lined…what kinds of stains and blots and markings- like the telephone pole. It’s not a smooth structure anymore. Time has layered it. The work has many different ways of trying to understand what we see in Pittsburgh now…. All the things we have collected have the texture of an imprint, that’s why the piece is called “Time Book”. It has that texture from the materials we engaged- from the archives of Rivers of Steel to the streets…. What we are trying to do… is present a consideration on the delusion of the permanence of anything.”
