Artist’s book that features stark black-and-white details from Pedaling in Sauerkraut. Signed and numbered. Book design by Ryan McGinness. Text by Jacqueline Marino. Photography courtesy of Ryan McGinness Studios.
This new artist book by Quint artist Ryan McGinness features 150 black-and-white detail images of Pedaling in Sauerkraut, which was exhibited at ONE from November 2020-January 2021.
This book exploits the fact that any attempt at faithfully reproducing Pedaling in Sauerkraut will fail. Instead, a decidely low-fidelity approach is taken by presenting details of the painting using only black ink on uncoated paper. Furthermore, presenting black-and-white details of the painting forces a consideration of the numerous micro-compositions found throughout the macro-compositions in Pedaling in Sauerkraut.
