Ninetieth Connection: Deep Blue
With its fan structure (giving the impression of solidity when fully open and at the same time existing in the fragments of its separate spokes), glossy deep blue palette, and snowy scene of a central but distorted frame house in the midst of bare branched trees, Mercy Snow House ©1996, is about the inevitability of loss. The fan shape and its possibilities interest me. I looked at examples of advertising fans – popular as a promotional giveaway items before air conditioning was common. In my piece, the word mercy is used instead of the name of a product, business or candidate.
