Emily Joyce, ‘Third of May, Blue’, 2013, Inman Gallery

framed; price includes frame.

Emily Joyce reconfigures a well-known form into dynamic graphic permutations in The Third of May, an edition published by Lomeli’s Gray Area Print (Los Angeles, CA). Each of the six prints displays one or more columnar sets of shapes (a deconstructed peace sign) on different-colored paper in two to ten ink colors. The printed pie sections, arches, and wedges can be read as positive forms as well as negative spaces defining similar shapes of colored paper, together creating compositions with a range of figurative and architectural associations.
