Dorothea Tanning (1910-2012)
Ouvre-toi: Plate I
The frieze dimension reappears to fit the format of a book of friezes to accompany a solo exhibition in Milan. Here the printer rolled color sideways, producing the gentle toning from one color to another. These Dionysiac revelers intertwine to announce more of the same goings-on inside the book. Each long narrow page unfolded out to reveal a succession of dramas like movies.
