EVENT

ENOC PEREZ: LEVER HOUSE (Silver, Indigo, Purple, and Red)


Dates:
Wed Nov 16, 2011 13:00 - Tue Jan 25, 2011

Location:
New York
United States of America

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.
 
ENOC PEREZ (b. 1967, San Juan, Puerto Rico, lives and works in New York, NY) received his M.F.A. from Hunter College and B.F.A. from Pratt. In 2007 he was the focus of a major survey exhibition at MoCA at Goldman Warehouse, Miami. He has exhibited in museums and galleries internationally, including the Centre Pompidou, Paris, France; The Collezione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia, Italy; the UCLA Hammer Museum, CA; The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, CT; and El Museo del Barrio, NY.
 Enoc Perez is represented in New York by Acquavella Galleries.
 
Lower East Side Printshop's programs have been supported in part by public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts, New York State Council on the Arts, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Private supporters include: the Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation, Lily Auchincloss Foundation, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Greenwall Foundation, Jerome Foundation, New York Community Trust, Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and our generous patrons and members.

"This
exhibition represents recent works from current Keyholder Residency Program
artists and participants in the Studio Rental Program. These programs provide
NY area artists access to both
affordable
facilities and a close knit print community; both of which are essential to
self publishing printmakers. The exhibited works are a great example of both
the range of techniques and experimentation possible at the shop and the high
caliber of work being produced there. As a former Keyholder, it is exciting to
see the continuation of these programs and the expansion into the beautiful
Midtown facilities.   It continues to be a muchneeded contribution to
printmaking in New York City and the print community at large." -Glen Baldridge
