Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta 1989
by Hugh Ricks
Eleventh in the series by Hugh Ricks. Taking all the techniques utilized in the prior ten years (bold colors, smooth gradations, cut paper, allusions to the landscape) Hugh Ricks added an oriental motif to emphasize the international scope of the event. This was the artist's second contribution to the series, having created the 1985 mixed media Fiesta poster. Here he abandons the lithography used in that year and takes the more graphic approach mandated by silk-screen print making.
