Matt Mullican’s 88 Maps book project at Three Star Books also exists as a unique work, offered in one color, in a subtle reference to the photocopy process — and frequent Xeroxing on color paper — of the early works of Concept art. The entire cycle of his print edition is re-presented in a monolithic monochrome version that also conjures up the Disaster paintings of Warhol, or many of the early works using newsprint of Robert Rauschenberg. Here, painting, in its post-Pop manifestation, becomes the subject and medium. A seamless transition from book to wall work.
