Referring to Leopold Bloom’s journey around Dublin, Spencer Finch recounts his peregrinations in New York City on 19 September 2014 through a selection of ca. 1400 Pantone color swatches. Each swatch, with adjacent text revealing what is evoked, conveys sights as mundane as gravestones, subways, books, food, trash cans, buildings, traffic cones, clothing, trees, etc., etc., to the sublime, like the artworks of Albers, Rembrandt, and Veronese.
As new. Designed by the artist Ofer Wolberger.
