    PROVENANCE:

    NOTE:
    Roe Ethridge studied photography at the Atlanta College of Art. He shoots in "editorial mode" and also borrows images already in circulation, including outtakes from his own commercial work, sometimes already published in other contexts. "Everything seems to end up in a magazine sooner or later," Ethridge has said. As the Museum of Modern Art in New York has noted of Ethridge, "Drawing upon the descriptive power of photography and the ease with which it can be accessed, duplicated, and recombined, the artist orchestrates visual fugues through juxtaposition. The pictures acquire their meaning from the salient way in which they have been shuffled, sequenced, and laid out in nonlinear narrative structures. Combining and recombining already recontextualized images, Ethridge at once subverts the photographs' original roles and renews their signifying possibilities."

    While I regret my inability to personally view the work, you provided an excellent substitute for my not being able to do so, and I look forward to future Heritage auctions.
