4 Diamond or Hanging
Gelatin silver print on Paper
1997 Indiana State University Print Exchange:
During the summer of 1997 eleven graduate students of the Arts at Indiana State University came together to produce this suite of prints and photographs. The main objective of the suite was to exchange artwork
with one another and create exhibition opportunities. Through consensus, the theme "GAMBLE" was established which resulted in eleven unique interpretations of the word. There are 11 artist prints in total, a title page and a colophon page.
The image is quite dark with a hangman’s noose in the foreground located in the upper 2/3 rd’s of the composition. Behind the noose is the faded and mysterious face of a man (Hsiang-Lu) and his hand holding 7 playing cards. The face is in the bottom half , right side of the composition as are the cards and hand.
