Description
While living in El Rito, a small community in northern New Mexico, the artist lived near the blacksmith Michael Hennerty and borrowed some of his tools to make photograms (cameraless photographs). The ghostly forms created by the tools reminded him of how they look when they are “at white heat” in the forge, intensely heated and almost transparent, and that phrase became the title of the series.
