Oranges and Sardines: Conversations on Abstract Painting

Commissioned by the Hammer Museum for their exhibition of the same name Oranges and SardinesConversations on Abstract Painting reinforces at a smaller scale the spirit of the show's intent. With each of the six featured contemporary artists reflecting on specific works of other artists that have influenced their own, the show constructs an observational nexus, instigates an unexpected dialog and beautifully illuminates the causal relationship between artistic precedents and their offspring. 

While the typographic styling and structure highlight the artist texts' insightful autobiographical sentiment, this printed companion to the exhibition also provides beautiful reproductions of the show’s exhibited works alongside their criterion counterparts. Designed in partnership with Lorraine Wild of Green Dragon Office.
