Quarto (28.5cm), pp. [8]. A set of eight loose, black and white prints in a brown portfolio with black titling. Includes photographic and collage work with titles including "Bovine Esthetic," "Richard Serra/Stew," "Robert Morris Machine Gun Nest" and the title piece. Folio has a little creasing and edge wear, prints are fine. Grieger says that early in his career, he self-published a few of these folios. "The strategy was: being an unknown artist I figured I could get around the constraints of that position by sending my artwork directly to people I wanted to see what I was doing. I got a lot of names and addresses and simply sent them my art. It worked beautifully and within a few months I was traveling to New York and other centers having shows, talks etc. Big fun." Grieger was friends with Montana painter Freeman Butts, and this folio is from Butts' collection. A writer in Art Week L.A. said of Grieger that, "[M]uch of the power of his work derives from the essential dynamic of how satire operates – through the transformation of known forms into configurations that yet remain recognizable enough to provide content and context for the author’s new intentions and original insights..."
