Harry Adams PART 2
(the book) double vision
COLLIDER part 2 (the book) double vision is a remix of the paintings made for COLLIDER part 1: (the exhibition), an online exhibition of screen-printed landscape paintings made during the Covid-19 lockdown of 2020.
Mirroring and zooming in on the screen-print paintings, confusing the original and the digital image, manipulated, made real again, into something new.
COLLIDER part 2 (the book) double vision can be read front ways, back ways, in a mirror, or on a Zoom call without diminishing your viewing experience.
The text on the endpapers is from a friend in another land, responding to the paintings in COLLIDER part 1, containing thoughts on making art while the world burns.
COLLIDER part 2 (the book) double vision comes with a FREE folded poster of COLLIDER part 1 (the exhibition) showing all the 86 ‘screen print paintings’ made for the exhibition, a series of cut-up, overlaid and collided images of land, water and sky derived from previous Harry Adams paintings.
