RAY K. METZKER: COMPOSITES text by Richard B. Woodward
Laurence Miller Gallery, 1990 First edition, Unpaginated, 8 1/2" X 9 1/2" Softcover
Very good +
Metzker is best known for his Composites, images stemming from his insight that a single work could be created from an entire roll of film. From a distance, they read as abstract, graphic tapestries. Close viewing reveals them to be composed of a series of individual "documentary" vignettes, which can be read both simultaneously and sequentially. This catalogue from an exhibition at the Laurence Miller Galley that ran from October 18 - November 21, 1990.
