ABOUT THE WORK
We’ve collaborated with LA based artist Mark Posey to create Don’t Cry, a hand-finished edition of 15, made from a base of archival pigment print and silkscreen gloss varnish that Posey finished with acrylic.
Don’t Cry is from Posey’s recent series of portraits, wherein he creates composite characters, collaged from a vast inventory of personal sources collected over the years. The unlikely combination of elements — clip art here, a neon sign there, butting against classical portraiture — harmonize underneath Posey’s layers of painted steam, which often have playful text droplets, creating the visceral sense that we are witnessing a true environment, albeit one that is preserved behind a barrier of glass. Literally blurring the lines of disparate content through his clever usage of materials, Posey captures the way our memories tend to plead with us, simultaneously embedded and guarded within.
