This edition is part of an original series of limited edition silkscreen prints, entitled PRINT AID, created in response to the distress caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. PRINT AID is a collaborative effort between silkscreen studio Pegasus Prints, art consultancy Sidel & McElwreath, and Exhibition A to provide creativity and assistance through the art community. Each edition supports an artist whose business has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, a portion of sales is donated to The Artist’s Fellowship, Inc, a non-profit organization that financially assists professional visual artists and their families in times of emergency, disability or bereavement.
ABOUT THE WORK
What does it mean to take your time? To stay present within a system of meaning, to follow an individual line on its journey within larger predetermined structures. James Siena designs complex hand-rendered visual algorithms that are deceptively accessible, containing densely packed information in the same elegant ways of a clear blue sky or the patterns on a leaf. His body of work, which spans engraving, etching, lithograph, woodcuts, drawing, and sculpture, evokes a sense of profound meaning channeled through his rigorously executed sequences.
In Enderlock, Siena's new silkscreen edition created at Pegasus Prints, his coded registries electrify in rapidly alternating blue and orange, forming small geometric patterns that build to towering undulations of line. There are messages contained in space. And Siena makes it a joy to explore.
