Pastel on paper
30" x 22"
Stephen Whisler creates here a blue print, but not the architectural kind or anything that was made from a printmaking device. His blue comes from his own thumb print. Using the "tiling" option on his home printer he scales up internet images and then transfers both grid and image, using his "digit" and a coating of blue pastel, onto a large piece of drawing paper. The result is an archival representation of a digital image that holds traces of the artist's identity creating a quixotic fist in the air towards the Overlordian menace of drone technology.
