The black-and-white photographs by the Japanese artist Sachiko Cho depict simple objects and everyday scenes. Sol LeWitt responds to each with a glossy, color linocut on the same sheet. Using brightly colored patterns, he makes direct reference or more oblique allusion to the structure of the photographs. The resulting juxtapositions give rise to analogies, mirror-images, and associations of surprising freshness. Out of a vibrant contrast of techniques, chromatic treatment, and motifs emerges a harmonious dialogue between the two pictures; the compositional structure becomes transparent and readable.
