Edition of 4 + 1 AP
A series of nine lenticular prints based on the four paperback novels of J.D. Salinger that use and manipulate the iconic but anonymous cover designs. The six-foot prints reconfigure and animate the brightly coloured geometric lines of the book covers, suggesting the modernist art historical precedents of abstract painters such as Stella and Lewitt, Minimalism, or even the Op Art movement. As such, questions arise as to Salinger's position towards modernism and modernity and the subsequent appropriate—or perhaps inappropriate—design of these books.
