The series, dedicated to Stella's late friend and racecar driver, Ronnie Peterson uses a quatrefoil shape, variously dissected and reversed, to create beautifully cohesive compositions.
Named after 3 race tracks in California and Mexico, the series consists of oblong, harmonically-colored prints resembling a birds-eye view of racetracks, which Stella had a lively personal interest in.
The six-piece series showcases the beautiful lines of the french curve one of Stella's favorite artmaking tools. Each print’s name corresponds to the names of endangered and extinct birds such as: Puerto Rican Blue Pigeon and the Okinawa Woodpecker.
The series contains eight total prints which take their bases from Stella's Cones and Pillars relief paintings. The names of the pieces are derived from the titles of short stories based on Italian Folktales. Stella employs aquatint printing for the first time to imitate the effect of oil paint brush strokes
The series of 25 prints was created by collaging scraps of discarded templates from Swan Engraving Company on a board and printing the inked surface. Because the collaged composition was uneven, when printed the paper gained a beautiful reliefed surface
