Baik Art presents a new limited edition of 25 silkscreen prints by Los Angeles artist Dane Picard. Each of the 16 x 16 inch reproductions on BFK Rives rag paper with deckled edges is signed, numbered and dated by the artist and will be offered for $150. The print shares its subject matter with Picard’s outdoor wall work, which is titled Power Grid Plus One. The wall work was completed in January 2016 and is currently on view at 2600 South La Cienega Boulevard.
Picard has adopted Power Grid Plus One as his subject matter for this project. Power Grid Plus One refers to the artist’s ongoing interest with things technological, and how present-day technology has affected our biological and geological world environments. Picard has created an image that signals the multiplicity of choices and perspectives, which occupy this moment in time. While utilizing an image of a single canary to symbolize the natural world, he uses representations of electrical outlets set in the form of a gridded code to depict human’s impact on nature. This new limited edition print picks up on the idea of the power grid as a cultural phenomenon and confronts it by using the poetic elegance of something biological.
Dane Picard’s new limited edition print is on view during regular gallery hours or by appointment with a Baik Art gallery representative.
