Jasper Johns. Usuyuki. 1980

Jasper Johns Usuyuki 1980

  • Not on view

Johns has explored a range of expressive variations using a crosshatching motif. Works with the title Usuyuki are named after a Japanese word for light snow. In these two examples, Johns has incorporated the same printing plates in different orientations. Note the circular, rectangular, and lozenge shapes in each to see ways he has altered his compositions.
