Home and Hearth, 2011
Serigraph on paper, 30” x 20”
Edition of 75
Publisher: Printmaking Center of New Jersey
Using a day-glow palette that harks back to his paintings and works on paper of
the early 1980s, Home and Hearth encases and forms three of Cole’s emblematic steam iron plate impressions into the breasts, crotch, and hips of a female figure. Cole aggrandized the image’s trio of big iron impressions resting on their pointed tops and overlaid their pneumatic forms with much smaller steam iron plate impressions which scatter, boat-like, about his floating body on its watery support. Amid his armada of buoyant irons one can make out sinuous, sperm-like motifs. Awash with yellow light, Cole’s sunny, sexual, and domestically titled composition’s breast-like forms at the top are given a delicate scarification or piercing by his steam iron’s intricate designs.
