With his camera, Alabama artist John DeMotte captures abstractions of alleys and buildings. These photographs become sources for his prints, translated into inked abstractions that retain little of the character of their original subjects. In Untitled, the result is an eerie work that recalls aerial maps of rivers and their tributaries. The chine collé method allowed DeMotte to adhere tissue thin pieces of paper to the larger, heavier printed piece, and the layers of ink on the two types of paper create a mottled effect that adds tonal depth to the image.
