Eugene Feldman, Headlights on West River Drive 2
What appears to be an abstract composition of irregular stripes is actually a series of representations. Feldman found an overlook onto West River Drive and photographed the headlights of moving cars. The appearance is that of overlapping gestures, as if the lights have left a visible and lasting mark on the night.
Feldman’s innovative experiments in photography in the context of offset lithography—the process used in almost all commercial printing—expanded the possibilities for printmaking. By manipulating visual images using commercial technology, Feldman pushed the boundaries of the medium.
