CONFETTI #43: "We are a disease . . . "; Limited Edition, Signed Silkscreen Print. Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. CONFETTI #43: "We are a disease . . . "; Limited Edition, Signed Silkscreen Print.
(Lexington, KY: Origami Express), 2006. First edition. One of 67 copies SIGNED and numbered in pencil by Vonnegut. Two-color silkscreen print on white Coventry cotton paper measuring 11 x 15 inches. According to Vonnegut, "Confetti is Origami's response to the in-your-face lack of meaning or message in so much modern art, starting, perhaps, with Mondrian, and of course excluding the strikingly communicative Cubists, but surely including the intellectually and morally blank works by the so-called 'Abstract Expressionists.' Origami says to the latter, with pictures as didactic as this one, 'If you have absolutely nothing to say to anybody, can't you please shut up?'" Fine.
