Catalogue of color photographs of details of graffiti found on bathroom walls.

With a text of a 1943 letter from Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman and Adolph Gottlieb to the New York Times illuminating their philosophy of art. Behind this surface subject however, is a second layer – a meditation on the relationship between painting and photography. Viewed from a distance these seemingly abstract images recall the post-war American painting of Rothko, Newman, Ryman, Rauschenberg or Twombly. As viewers, we expect the subtleties of color, light, and surface markings to be those of painted canvases.
