About this title

Synopsis:

Catalog of an exhibition shown at Parco Gallery, Tokyo. "These photographs mounted on metal I am showing now for the first time. I think of them as tablets-- Zen tablets if you will. Pieces of walls, floors, man-made objects, with human surface scratchings brief and temporary like life itself yet clear and precious. I am an abstract expressionist and an action painter by nature, and a Duchampian finger-pointer by choice. As Duchamp said, 'the artist of the future will merely point his finger and say it's art-- and it will be art.' These are all full negative, uncropped photos shot in natural light representing 47 years of work. They were taken with a Nikon camera and a 2.8 lens. They are also tablets of time, unending and hopefully a way for one to enjoy looking at life in a new light that art is everywhere, in every corner that you choose to frame and not just ignore and walk by."--Dennnis Hopper. Published by Korinsha, Kyoto, Japan, 1998. [6], 60 leaves, [9] pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 25 cm. Limited text in English and Japanese.
