Barbara Rossi: Eye Owe You

Created on the occasion of the exhibition “Eye Owe You,” this 126-page book contains 124 images from Barbara Rossi’s vast collection of 35mm slides taken between 1971 – 1975.¬†Arranged by the artist in a specific sequence to correlate one image to the next, they document hand painted outdoor signs and window displays in Chicago and other cities around the globe. The street scenes provide a glimpse into her working process that, in contrast, yields surprisingly biomorphic abstract paintings and drawings. The book also contains an afterword by DePaul Art Museum’s Director and Chief Curator Julie Rodrigues Widholm.
