14 x 18" broadside. Letterpress printed for the Queer Communities in Print portfolio exchange at the 2014 SGC International Conference in San Francisco, 'Socialites' is a short story that revolves around an anachronistic trip to the Vatican by the publicly rich. The piece captures their humanoid sort of disconnect, their simultaneous ignorance and omnipotence, and the naive way in which they're debauched. There is an aesthetic tension between Xerox and fine press, between a Futurist/Constructivist geometry and the medieval feel of colors like brown, red, black, and white. Collaged strips of found paper invoke light: sun-bleached cardstock, the gray haze of the photocopier bed, and rows of embossed circles like dressing-room vanity lights.
