Edition of 20 + 2 AP

Produced on the occasion of the exhibition The Parallax Curtain, Melissa Gordon's limited edition Moiré, 2012 is a series of twenty unique works which collectively and playfully explore the effect of moiré patterns. Made up of two individual but identical layers one blue, one red, the blue layer remains stationary whilst the red layer shifts by a varying degree of separation for each print. As the series progresses, the rotation at which the red layer is printed has shifted, so that edition one is printed at -10 on the axis and edition twenty is at +10. This variance in rotation means that each print appears different from the others and so creates a series of editions that are both facsimiles and unique works.
