Revelation by Heidi Taillefer

by Denis on April 9, 2013


Heidi Taillefer
‘s current exhibition at the Copro Gallery in Los Angeles, The Land of the Blind, will be closing in the next few days.  In this exhibition, she introduces new and unique sculptural works centered around the theme of Eros which are amazing and I encourage everyone to click on the link above to see images and a proper description of these hand cast dolls.

This brings me to Revelation, Heidi’s new limited edition print.  This print is a reproduction of her painting of the same name that was part of her 2010 exhibition at the Michael Berger Gallery.  Here is a description of that work, as per Heidi:

Revelation is a painting about transformation of oneself, from sinister and malevolent to an evolution towards the light. The horse is Pegasus of greek mythology, who grew from the blood of the head of Medusa. A symbol of wisdom, Pegasus rides out from a blood soaked coach shell as a cloud of ominous ravens, giving the horse it’s blackened color. But he moves from the sinister or left side towards the towards to glow of light and wisdom on the right, which characterizes his ultimate being.

DETAILS ABOUT THE PRINT
Edition: 40
Signed & Numbered
Technique: Giclée
Paper: Hahnemühle Photo Rag
Paper Size: 18 x 24 inches

New Limited Edition Print by Jeff Proctor

by Denis on June 14, 2012

You may know Jeff Proctor through the gig posters he has done for the Black Keys and Mogwai or his Mondo/Alamo posters for movies such as Zombie, Dawn of the Dead and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Back in August 2011, Jeff showcased a collection of his original works in the context of a solo exhibition at the Breeze Block Gallery in Portland, OR, where he was challenged by the gallery’s curator to bring some beauty into his typically gory art and the outcome was a somewhat unsettling yet very enthralling combination of gorgeous – gnarliness. We are extremely proud to collaborate with Jeff in offering a limited edition print to one of his stunning watercolor paintings featured in that exhibition.

Signed & Numbered

That’s Impressive by Glasgow Press

by Denis on March 26, 2012

A little while back I came across the site of Glasgow Press in the U.K. and, based on the photos of their work, they seemed like competent letterpress printers. As I recently received their latest self-promotional mailer, I can now attest to the fact that they do great work. The mailer consists of 5 colorful cards wrapped in a belly band and enclosed in a fuchsia pink box. Each card features the title of a song from a favourite Glasgow band (i.e. Belle And Sebastian, Frightened Rabbit, The Pastels, Camera Obscura, The Blue Nile) and, on the back of each card, an excerpt of the lyrics of that song. My favourite card is the Living In Colour which not only has 4 colours (relatively rare for letterpress work) but, one notices when looking at the side of the card, that it also has 3 layers of paper (white, red & yellow) which gives a beautiful effect. Another delightful touch is the black stamp on the belly band which simulates a vinyl on a turntable. The quality of the printing throughout the whole set is crisp and clean and the tactile aspect of the paper and printing is, simply said, a sensual pleasure. Kudos to Glasgow Press and designer Kerr Vernon!

British film maker Danny Cooke has recently done a great short documentary about letterpress titled Upside Down, Left to Right. The documentary features Paul Collier, the letterpress and typography technician at Plymouth University in the U.K., who says “the digital age removes us from tactile, hands-on work, and there’s a longing to get back to that.” Enjoy!
