Shusaku Arakawa was a Japanese artist and architect. Arakawa arrived in New York from Japan in 1961 with fourteen dollars in his pocket and a telephone number for Marcel Duchamp, who he phoned from the airport and with whom he eventually formed a close friendship. He started using diagrams within his paintings as philosophical propositions. Jean-Francois Lyotard said of Arakawa's work that it "makes us think through the eyes." Writer Arthur Danto (the long  time art critic for The Nation) found Arakawa to be "the most philosophical of contemporary artists." For his own part, Arakawa declared: "Painting is only an  exercise, never more than that."

Mel Bochner is the supreme wordsmith of the contemporary art world. His longstanding collaboration with print publisher, Two Palms, NYC, is on-going and an extremely successful relationship. This print is from the artist's EXASPERATION series and is one of the double panel editions that Bochner started to explore with the printshop in the mid 2010s. One need not say more right now...given our current state of being.
