About this Artwork
This work is from the Halftone Paintings series, which are made with a specialized printing surface that leaves a matrix of tiny dots in pattern similar to a photographic halftone.
Halftone is the method used in commercial printing to translate the continuous tone of photographic emulsion to a field of minute dots of varying size.
The Halftone Paintings somewhat resemble fragmentary enlargements of this kind of image.
