Glenn Ligon: Runaways (1993) Lithographs, 10 prints

The group of prints were significantly distorted, with concave and convex waves of planar distortions across the top edge, middle right, and middle left edges in response to the hinges that hold the work to its back mat. The prints were humidified and flattened using moisture followed by drying under weight. The use of corners was recommended instead of hinging due to the extremely moisture-sensitive paper support.
