Unique and Singular is a
Unique and Singular is a group show of works on paper. Culled from a selection of Cirrus publications, the show features the following artists, Lita Albuquerque, Peter Alexander, Mark Bradford, Jerry Brane, Laddie Dill, Jill Giegerich, Joe Goode, Charles Hill, Dennis Hollingsworth, Mark Lere, David Lloyd, Allan McCollum, Jason Meadows, Kori Newkirk, Ruben Ochoa, Ed Ruscha, Mary Weatherford, and Jonas Wood. The exhibition explores how past printing techniques were used to create one-of-a-kind works, preceding today’s prevalent use of digital printing methods to make paintings.
The show illustrates the various techniques used to create unique works on paper, including, monotype, monoprint, painting, digital printing, performance, chine-collé, drawing and lithography. In the past, the artist worked by hand and created smaller scale works. In contrast, today’s artists are using new tools, which encompass digital printers and files, images sourced from the internet, and social media. The images, usually larger in scale, are frequently printed on various materials, such as canvas, wood, metal, etc. In addition to working with digital technology, a number of artists are also adding back the hand element by painting or drawing onto the printed imagery, and often times, producing these works in multiples.
