I still believe pattern fascinates on its own. And three-sevenths of a pattern, or even a smaller fragment, can fascinate still more—get us really hunkering down, trying to tease out the whole of the figure in the carpet.
Samuel R. Delany

Participating Artists: Rebecca Bird, Andrew Chan, Heidi duPont, Christina Moroño, Irena Pejovic, Felix Plaza, Elian Stolarsky, and Liz Zanis.

The eight artists in Stars in My Pocket like Grains of Sand use abstract imagery—sometimes ephemeral, other times impenetrable—to propose and obscure their personal agendas. The works serve as activators for contemplation and healing, and allow the viewers to play a participant role. The strength of these works is their lack of clarity combined with a state of lucidity that engage the viewer in a collective dreaminess and willful distraction. Visitors are granted the expansive creation of internal/external, or existential points of view simultaneously which encourages their entry into unconscious realms.

EDITIONS '13
Reception and Catalogue Launch: Wednesday, May 22, 6-8 pm

Exhibition Dates: May 15 - July 14, 2013
Hours: Monday – Friday, 10am-6pm; Saturday – Sunday, 12 - 6pm
Free and open to the public

Lower East Side Printshop is pleased to present the EDITIONS ‘13 reception and catalogue launch on Wednesday, May 22, from 6-8pm. The exhibition will be on view at the Printshop from May 15 – July 14, 2013. With an essay by Deborah Cullen, Director and Chief Curator of Wallach Art Gallery at Columbia University, the catalogue and exhibition feature new works by recipients of the Printshop’s Publishing and Special Editions Residencies: Alison Elizabeth Taylor, Sebastiaan Bremer, Joell Baxter, Jonggeon Lee, and Steven Millar.

The Special Editions Residency allows emerging artists to create major bodies of work in collaboration with Master Printer Erik Hougen and Printers Keigo Takahashi and Laura Charlton, fully sponsored by the Printshop. Joell Baxter, Jonggeon Lee, and Steven Millar immersed themselves in printmaking techniques for several months before developing their vision for their final works. What followed were gorgeous print projects of conceptual and technical expertise.

The Printshop’s Publishing Residency Program invited Alison Elizabeth Taylor and Sebastiaan Bremer to create new editions, also collaborating with the Printer trio. Taylor embraced the opportunity to mix and match techniques and materials—including her customary wood veneer—creating beautifully textured editions and her most ambitious print projects to date. Bremer continued his exploration of vintage family photographs and used a whimsy approach to enhance the surface quality. His technique was to remove and replace cut-outs, and add hand painting with mirrors.

The Printshop's residency programs offer opportunities to artists of all career stages to use professional facilities and collaborate with talented printers who approach each artist’s vision with care.

Hours: Weekdays from 10am – 6pm, and weekends from 12 - 6pm

Lower East Side Printshop is pleased to present Part of the Story guest curated by artist and critic Julian Kreimer. The exhibition will be on view at the Printshop from March 20 – May 12, 2013 with a public reception on Wednesday, April 3, from 6-8pm.

Walking down the street you see a torn piece of paper, written on it are a few sentences, the middle of a letter, a journal entry, a homework assignment? This fragmentary glimpse intrudes into the routine of your day, alternately nagging and inspiring. You want to know more, but never will.

The artworks in this exhibition share a certain opacity. They are images of scenes, possible views, propositions. In all of them we feel we are getting a part of a larger story, but that larger story is kept from us.

In Kymia Nawabi’s and Rebecca Bird’s prints, we are privy to rituals and views that have the powerful logic of dreams we only partially remember. Liz Zanis’ prints and objects inject a funny sense of the uncanny into the everyday. Megan Berk’s images suggest a vision we might see at night before we understand what it is we are looking at. Colored lines partially hide photos of hard-to-place locales in Daniele Genadry’s work, while Rachael Abrams uses geometric imagery to simultaneously reveal and obfuscate her texts. Long-past avant-gardes revive in Amanda Keeley’s semi-invented publications. Charles Koegel’s small altered newspaper clipping and Brad Ewing’s collaborative print made with Fumi Mini Nakamura suggest cartoons missing their explanatory text, reversing the way we expect to read them.

Our quickness to google the slightest question suggests our unease with the unknown. By revealing only part of the story, these works make that discomfort central to their meaning.
