White Supremacist Composition is a white monochrome readymade that I purchased in Texas. A sheet of stickers depicting cruxifixes, Jesus fish, and other Christian symbols, the work is a merger of Malevich’s Suprematist Composition: White on White painting (in MoMA’s collection) and the language of ultra right Christian conservatism (ie, the KKK and white supremacism).
