introduction to a tragedy

“introduction to a tragedy” 61″ x 38″ (1549mm x 965mm) acrylic on wood. $2500 + shipping

This piece is literally the opening sentences to a tragic love story, expressed in binary code, read top to bottom, left to right. Each 4″ section of every column represents one number in the sequence. The raised pieces are zeroes, (or “offs”), the recessed pieces are ones, (“ons”).  The green field was simply too much to leave uninterrupted, so two key words are in yellow outlined in black for definition. The raised orange segment in the centre is valueless, except that it brings visual colour contrast to the piece and carries the orange panel sides which you can see in the slideshow below.
