Between Red & Green, accordion book, 2015

LB Thompson and Ellen Wiener are pleased to announce the publication of BETWEEN RED & GREEN. The poem, written expressly for these paintings, is loosely based on a verse form called the pantoum. Merging this kind of syncopated ‘walking lyric’ with the physical architecture of a flexible accordion invites multiple readings of the sounds, relative locations and emotional implications that move through image, character and hue.

This signed edition of only 20 copies was bound in French blue silk with a vermillion spine by Judith Ivry. The long single pages were each printed by Rob Reiter. Closed, the book measures 14 x 7 x 1”– when expanded, it opens to a full 112”. Click here for detail images.
