At first glance, Etheredge's work is minimal, almost stark, diametrically opposed to the flourishes of nineteenth century eulogy. His patterned fields of type on paper evoke the visual formulae of information culture-streaming data, wave-form graphs, fields of dense and not immediately decipherable code. Even the color photographs of landscape are framed by and subordinated to type. In his choice of these parameters-black letters and white space, arranged via carefully planned and precisely executed operations-Etheredge engages premises derived from conceptualism, in which the meaning of representation is constantly interrogated and mark-making rigorously schematized. The artist's background as a scientist-he holds a B.A. in zoology as well as an M.D.-undergirds these interests, stimulating his preoccupation with systemic functions, his patient tracking of a given hypothesis through all possible permutations. Rules, or what Etheredge calls 'simple relationships between foci,' become both the medium and message, arising in the artist's mind as random propositions, inscribing themselves on paper as clean, undeviating visual flow. - extract from essay by Frances Richard (2002)
