For All That Glitters, I collected over 1,000 used paperback book covers that contain a gold element, often embossed gold text. I meticulously painted around the original gold portions using gold paint. I am interested in what happens when I erase the color gold with itself. This process results in clashes of different shades of gold or reveals other colors (yellows, bronzes and oranges) either described as gold or confused with gold, perhaps as a kind of “fool’s” gold. This clash of color speaks to discrepancies in how we assign value. The economic value of cultural production such as fiction has become increasingly unclear as print media begins to disappear.
