RIFFS ON REAL TIME
2 chromogenic prints, each flush-mounted, framed, 2002-05, each no. 4 in an edition of 5 (2)
Each 30 by 24 in. (76.2 by 61 cm.)
These two chromogenic prints are in generally excellent condition. The colors remain bright and vibrant with no apparent fading. Both works have a faint linear impression, perhaps the result of pressure from the spacer in each frame, approximately 1/4-inch from the edges of each print, only visible in raking light and not when the works are framed. None of these characteristics deter from the beautiful presentation of these photographs.
'Riffs on Real Time' (1 of 10) (orange book): There is a small chip at the lower left corner.
'Riffs on Real Time' (2 of 10) (Ebony magazine): There is a 1/8-inch x 1/4-inch loss at the upper right edge, which is not visible when the work is framed. It also has a zigzag-shaped impression about 2 inches from the lower center edge, which may be the result of the mounting process.
