Printed in chartreuse, dark green, bright yellow, orange, and brown, this surreal scene features a grey-walled room populated with strange machinery and a red chair. Paolozzi creates a multitude of textures, combining smooth, geometric forms and flat color, with photographic reproduction, effaced sketched lines, and woodcut. From the merger of peculiar, antiquated parts and futuristic technologies suggests the form of a green-eyed deity, whose head is framed by a yellow halo.
Printed on the occasion of Galerie Mikro’s 1969 exhibition Eduardo Paolozzi Complete Graphics. The imagery is reproduced from the artist’s book Metafisikal Translations, in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Printed in an edition of 200, the book contains 30 screenprints including this one.
