Untitled (Drypoint)
2014
36 drypoint prints
mounted on book board
70 1⁄4 x 70 1⁄4 inches
Edition of 6

Untitled (Drypoint) is both an homage to and a critique of Minimalist artist Carl Andre’s signature sculpture, “Plain.” This 36-panel print, in an edition of 6, was created by walking on a 6 x 6 foot square comprised of 36 cold-rolled steel plates, laid out to resemble the Andre sculpture, of which both the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and the Art Institute of Chicago each own a version. Shellabarger paced a serpentine path across the steel plates while wearing shoes affixed with heavy grit sandpaper to his soles. He then printed each plate like one would a drypoint print. The prints are assembled in order to recreate the path trod upon the plates, and is presented on a low pedestal just above the gallery floor.
