Compositions on Vintage Newspaper

A brief series — sixteen works in all — from 2014, inspired by a bound library volume of vintage (1941) newspaper that had been discarded after being digitized; Gladstone cut selected advertisements, articles and images from the crumbling newsprint, carefully mounted them to wood panels and allowed them to suggest these imaginative, layered compositions
