Bruce Connor | Legal Tender

Bruce Connor
Legal Tender
New York City, USA: The Letter Edged in Black Press, 1968
15.6 x 6.8 cm.
Edition of 2000

Thirty double-sided offset printed paper with green and black ink, held together by a paper band. From SMS #2.

"Well-known for his found-footage films, Conner also worked across media, including pen and ink drawing. His signature style is characterized by meandering rivulets of black ink densely drawn in dizzying ornate patterns. Often using mandalas and other symbology in his designs, here Conner references the economic symbol of value: the dollar bill. Intricate designs are printed on a series of identical “dollars” using the same black, white, and green color palate as US currency. Bound as “Legal Tender,” the identical bills connect art’s reproduction to monetary multiples."
