Virtual E/AB: Lower Eastside Printshop
However disappointing, the cancellation of this year’s Editions/Artists’ Books Fair may seem trivial in the broader context of the genuine tragedies caused by superstorm Sandy. But the cancellation represents a tremendous loss for the fair’s exhibitors, who work toward this event all year, and may depend on its success. Printeresting has offered E/AB participants an online platform to showcase new editions. We can’t make up for the loss of the fair, but we hope that our readers will appreciate these great projects (and that you might consider supporting these publishers during a difficult time).
Editions from LOWER EASTSIDE PRINTSHOP in New York:
Lower East Side Printshop is pleased to announce the publication of two new editions by Darina Karpov. Using photographs of her enviornment as a departure for her work, Darina creates complex compositions of intricately detailed and vibrant abstracted forms. Her fluid mark-making allows the viewer to observe movement and dynamic spatial relationships within her work. Darina Karpov created Crawlers and Air Blooming through the Printshop’s prestigious Special Editions Residency Program, working with printers Erik Hougen, James Miller, and Kelly Macario. The archival inkjet, screeprint, and collage prints each measure 17.5 x 11.5 inches (44.45 x 29.21 cm) image and 22 x 15.5 inches (55.88 x 39.37 cm) sheet, unframed, and are printed in editions of 10.
DARINA KAPROV (b. 1973, St. Petersburg, Russia; lives and works in Brooklyn, NY) received her MFA from Yale University and BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art. Select exhibitions include Hales Gallery, London, England; Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, Ireland; Daniel Weinberg Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; Lehman College Art Gallery, Bronx, NY; and Peter Fingesten Gallery, New York, NY. She is a recipient of The Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant and is represented by Pierogi Gallery.
Lower East Side Printshop is pleased to announce the publication of four new editions by David Kramer. His satrical works rely on text and appropriated images to, characteristically, demonstrate the disparity between the artists’s everyday reality and the glamour and glitz of the elusive “good life.” When considering the promised wealth from popular advertisements of his youth, David has been quoted “I felt certain that my future would look a lot like what I was looking at in those ads. I am still hoping to grow up and get my hands on those things.” David Kramer created Winter Wines, Mexico, Cheryl, and Gagosian through the Printshop’s prestigious Special Editions Residency Program, working with printers Erik Hougen, James Miller, and Kelly Macario. The archival inkjet, screeprint, and collage prints each measure 30 x 22 inches (76.2 x 55.9 cm) or 22 x 30 inches ( 55.9 x 76.2 cm), unframed, and are printed in editions of 14.
DAVID KRAMER (b. 1963, New York, NY; lives and works in New York, NY) received his MFA in sculpture from Pratt. His work has been the subject of national and international solo exhibitions including Galerie Laurent Godin, Paris, France; Aeroplastics Contemporary, Brussels, Belgium; Pierogi, Brooklyn, NY; Tom Jankar Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; Pollard + Mulherin Gallery, New York, NY; and Heiner Contemporary, Washington, DC.
