ABOUT THE WORK
"The new print Anna is based on a finished charcoal and chalk drawing I recently made in preparation for a large painting featured on the cover of Self-Service Magazine. The drawing is based on my original digital collage assembled from images of the model Anna Ewers photographed by Ezra Petronio for a Self-Service editorial shoot. The drawing shows Anna in close proximity to herself, amplifying the effect of how cover images and social media advance notions of the endless representations of the reproduction of the self.
I chose to partner with Exhibition A as an exciting way to share the experience of this detailed drawing of Anna as distinct from its role in support of the painting and by extension the magazine format. I wanted to retrieve and upcycle the image from fashion media and insist on its function as autonomous art.
I knew from my experience working with Exhibition A on our inaugural project [in 2010], creating an edition of my painting Der Bodensee, that [their] serious attention to quality would create an edition that would accurately communicate the sensitivities and original intention of my artwork. Incredibly — because of the materials and process Exhibition A uses, the print is practically indistinguishable from the original drawing even on very close inspection. The feeling of the drawing being present is uncanny.
What I like most about working with Exhibition A is the possibility to more broadly communicate by way of creating works where the focus on quality and detail is objectively far beyond reason, leading to extraordinary experiences with art that is well within reason with it comes to making it a part of one's own collection."
