Lower East Side Printshop is pleased to announce the publication of four new, large-scale screenprint editions by the acclaimed artist Enoc Perez.
Continuing his exploration of modernist buildings and their architectural allure, both symbolically and aesthetically, Perez has revisited the distinguished New YorkCity Lever House building as a subject. The new prints explore the pioneer-building’s grandness as an architectural innovation and a symbol of power. Perez approaches his motif as a painterly abstraction, through a very sensuous treatment of color, vibrant texture, and composition. Ultimately, these prints offer both a bold point of view and a sense of effortless completion.
Enoc Perez has created the Lever House editions through the Printshop’s exclusive Publishing Residency Program, working with printers James Miller and Erik Hougen. The seven-color screenprints measure 48.25 x 34 inches (122.6 x 86 cm) each, unframed; they are printed in editions of 20; and will be available by December 1, 2011.
The release price for a single print is currently $4,000, unframed.
