About this artwork

In the late 1980s, Victor Schrager cut advertising images into the shape of everyday household items, in this case a detergent box (other objects included a pack of cigarettes), and affixed them to colored Formica sheets. He wanted to render sculptural form in two dimensions and also to elicit emotional responses through the use of pure color. Since 2006 Schrager has made blurred, abstract photographs of closed books, likewise arranging them into planes of expressive color.
