Welcome to the Water Planet
Paperworks by James Rosenquist
10 June – 12 September 2006


Over a period of 100 days artist James Rosenquist, with master printer Ken Tyler, produced 720 sheets of handmade, hand-coloured paper forming the basis of the series which combines commonplace objects like pots and flowers to objects with extra-terrestrial imagery. Using brilliant luminous colours on a massive scale these works show earth as a rich but vulnerable planet under threat from a growing consumer culture.
