The Literary Landscape series is an accumulation of text addressing text as an environment. In this case all the text on the front cover of "Susan Sontag As Consciousness Is Harnessed to Flesh" is ritually transcribed as a single image and then painted and repainted, using the repetition to abstract the text over multiple renditions. This image is iteration #6, ink on paper, 9x13.5" (12x20" framed).
