Stains (after Ed Ruscha)

Mixed Media on Paper in Handmade Box, 12.5 x 11.5 x 1", 78 pages, edition of 10, 2009

Ed Ruscha's Stains is a portfolio of 75 stains, each on a separate sheet of paper (plus a blood stain on the box's lining). I made stains using the same materials as Ruscha and matched the paper and box as closely to the original as I could. However, since my Stains box was made 40 years after Ruscha's, some of the stains are less faded, yellowed, etc.
