This is the third in a series playing with the artwork of Corita Kent. Corita was wont to incorporate text liberally into her serigraphy. The text here, legible but barely so, is from a contribution Ad Reinhardt offered to a seminar on the subject of "black." He talks about black as symbol and as concept. It's use in art, he says, "is involved in a certain kind of perfection." And that, he wants to emphasize, has nothing to do with religion. Black is seldom what it seems.
Who's being a little coy here?
