We just finished a new monotype project with Carlos Andrade.

A new series of mixed-media monotypes by Carlos Andrade.

Artist Carlos Andrade arrived at Manneken Press from his home in Cali, Colombia, just a few days after our return from the E/AB Fair. I have worked with Carlos at Manneken Press on several different monotype projects since 2009, and we were printing together as early as 1996 in my studio in New York. Carlos has always been interested in using vernacular materials in his paintings sculptures and installations, and we have previously incorporated materials such as color-xerox copies, printed religious ephemera, and synthetic meshes and fabrics into his prints. This time he arrived at Manneken Press with a bagful of festones, the colorful plastic triangular flags which are strung up in strands for street festivals in Central and South America, wanting to use them in his prints. He had flags in an array of transparent colors, which when overlapped, created interesting new colors.

After spending a day adhering the festones, with their strings still attached, to paper we had about 12 sheets to work with, ranging in size from 30″ x 22″ to 60″ x 44″. We spent the rest of the week printing and creating a new series of wonderfully textured, unusual and very typically “Andrade” monotypes.  Once the prints are dry and have been documented we will add them to the website.

The 2016 Editions/Artist’s Books Fair has concluded.

After a whirlwind Print Week in New York City we are now back home and following up with the many interested collectors, curators, art consultants and gallerists who stopped in at our booth at the E/AB Fair. The fair included more than forty exhibitors from across the USA and from as far away as South Africa, showing contemporary prints, portfolios, artist’s books and unique paper works. Attendance at the fair was good, including over 1000 visitors at Thursday night’s VIP opening. We were pleased to be able to present all new work in our booth, created at Manneken Press over the past year by seven different artists.

Weekend Studio Visit: Richard Hull in East Village, Chicago, by John Yau.

A wonderful article by John Yau on Richard Hull’s recent work was published in Hyperallergic this weekend. The article discusses Hull’s current “Stolen Portraits” series of paintings and drawings and includes a number of images of very recent work. Link to the article here.

Richard Hull produced a pair of etchings and several monotypes in this vein at Manneken Press in 2015. Hull’s prints can be viewed here, and in person at the upcoming E/AB Fair at Manneken’s booth (B38).

Jack Davidson at THEODORE: Art

By | Jack Davidson, New project | No Comments
Jack Davidson is one of several artists included in the exhibition Deux Côtés / Two Sides at THEODORE:Art, Brooklyn, NY.

Jack Davidson, who lives and works in Barcelona, creates collages from torn, painted paper to which he adds elements such as Rorschach blots and metal leaf accents. These carefully considered compositions become the basis for his paintings. The exhibition at THEODORE:Art includes several of his collages. Exhibition dates are Sept. 9 – Oct. 17 2016.

Davidson also used collages as the basis for the monotypes he created at Manneken Press in April 2016.  Jack Davidson’s prints can be viewed here.

Manneken Press will be showing Davidson’s monotypes at the Editions/Artist Book Fair in New York, November 3-6.
