Notes

A companion piece to the artist's 'White Porcelain Bowls', also comprising a limited screen-print edition of twenty-four pieces of poetic text. The texts are printed in white on richly coloured backgrounds and the loose sheets - 24 texts and two title-pages - are contained in a Japanese-style case binding also by the author/artist. Morton writes: 'Each fascinating monochrome is emphasised by white, and white, in turn, in this book becomes interesting. Then, an accurate measure from each monochrome is added to white - an ink is created - the text is written, being born of, being part of, the image upon which it is now printed. Fixed. The White Porcelain Bowls are filled with symphonies of Yellow. Look closely. Look again. Look again. Look for longer...'
