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.

A digital photograph by Gary Justis is included in “RGB”, an international juried photography exhibition at PH21 Gallery in Budapest, Hungary.

Gary Justis often uses light as both subject and material in his kinetic sculptures, digital photographs and monoprints. His recent work involves the manipulation of various light sources and a variety of reflective surfaces and objects to create mysterious figures of light, which he then photographs.   Some images reference human or alien figures, animals, imaginary plants, natural phenomena, land or spacescapes, while others are completely abstract. These digital works are realized as archival pigment prints.

Images of Gary Justis’ digital works and his recently completed monoprint series at Manneken Press can be viewed here: http://mannekenpress.com/artists-3/gary-justis-page/

The exhibition in Budapest runs through September 20, 2016.

Monoprint project with Gary Justis is underway

By | Gary Justis, Monotypes | No Comments

Manneken Press is buzzing with activity this month as Gary Justis works on a group of new monoprints.

In 2011 Gary Justis created a series of monoprints based on chandelier images, and this new group of monoprints continues in the same vein, utilizing stainless steel plates cut into chandelier profiles.  Justis was able to “draw” the images with a plasma torch. The distinctive edge left by the plasma torch on the metal creates a unique surface which comes into play in interesting ways during the printing process.

Ink is applied to the chandelier form which is printed on paper. In some cases the sheet has a ground previously printed from a sheet of plywood.  Each print is treated as a unique work, and the chandelier form can be re-inked and printed over a previously printed image several times.

Work on this project will continue through March, 2016, and the prints will be released shortly thereafter.
