Minor Geographies at the Palace Hotel: Cahill’s Butterfly, Monoprint Series B

Artist: Mark Rumsey
Medium: Color transfer print, 1 of 1
Dimensions: 15" x 21"
Provenance: Acquired from artist

One of a series of color transfer prints based upon the physical attributes of the walls of the former Palace Hotel, Shanghai, China. In 2013 the building was home to The Swatch Art Peace Hotel, where Mark Rumsey was a guest artist. The series plays with world map projections, the ubiquitous Google map icon, the omnipresent eye, signature chops, QR codes and the historic hotel seal.

Works from the series were part of the exhibition "Reimagining the Landscape and the Future of Nature", Grand Rapids Art Museum, 2013.
