The Sight of Death, 2009

Chine-colle print
29 x 36 inches
Edition of 3

'The Sight of Death' is a chine-colle print featuring juxtaposed mountains centered on an expanse of off-white mouldmade 300-gram paper, each cropped from a Nicolas Poussin painting: 'Landscape with a Calm' (1650-51) and 'Landscape with a Man Killed by a Snake' (1648). The piece's title draws from T.J. Clark's eponymous book, which records the art historian's prolonged meditation on the two paintings over the two years (2000-02) that they hung together at the Getty, and which advocates slow looking.
