This exhibition of work by gallery artists explores the relationship between the artist and prints and multiples.
Ghiora Aharoni incorporates found objects and cultural artifacts into his sculptures and installations, which makes each edition unique. When All Roads Are One, one of his time-based media sculptural works, is an editioned series of three, one of which was recently acquired by The Metropolitan Museum of Art for the permanent collection.
For Karen Knorr and Kim Joon, who both utilize digital technology, the print is the final product of their labor and creativity. Their multiples are perfect in their exact likeness. Karen Knorr seamlessly merges her meticulous photographs, often taken with a large-format analogue camera, with digital technology to create surrealistic images. Kim Joon constructs fantastical compositions with computer software that he brings to life in a digital print.
For Kamolpan Chotvichai, Miya Ando and Ricardo Mazal the print is one part of a process—a catalyst for new bodies of work, or ideas to be re-imagined. Miya Ando meticulously applies silver leaf and pigment onto paper in her work-on-paper series Gekkou (Moonlight), making each clearly part of the series, but wholly unique. Painter and photographer Ricardo Mazal often begins a new body of work by first taking a photograph that inspires the shapes and colors of his distinctive oil paintings. Kamolpan Chotvichai begins with her own image, which is printed on paper.
Work by Susan Weil, known for her blueprint collaborations with Robert Rauschenberg and photographer José Betancourt, and a large-format photograph by Shirin Neshat will also be on view.
