Pace Prints is pleased to present recent editions and monoprints at Art Basel Hong Kong, Booth 1B39.
Highlighted will be Andy Warhol’s iconic Campbell’s Soup Edition II (1969.) A vibrant set of ten screenprints, this portfolio is based on his 1962 Campbell’s Soup paintings, exhibited at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles. They remain one of his most recognizable portfolios.
Untitled (Chinese Characters) highlights the prominence of printmaking in Xu Bing’s practice. Each of the elements in this unique large-scale woodblock print is individually printed. Presented as a scroll and suggesting a legible text, Xu’s “Chinese” characters are actually invented, provoking the viewer’s sense of language.
Tomoo Gokita’s Dance Party and The Madmen #1 highlight Gokita’s surreal style. Depicting figures of a bygone era in his distinctive black-and-white palette, Gokita obscures figurative details with large, gestural strokes. Executed in pigmented handmade paper pulp, these are some of the only prints Gokita has created.
With a career that has spanned over half a century, Pat Steir is a leading figure in the development of Postmodern abstraction. Her monoprints such as Rainbow in Waterfall (2005) exist in conversation with various art historical movements—from Abstract Expressionism to traditional Chinese painting. Working with these influences, the artist creates meditative, often large-scale pieces that frequently reference the natural world.
Shepard Fairey’s Harmony (Plate) and Star Flower will be highlighted, showing off Fairey’s signature propaganda style as applied to aesthetic subjects, while Black Gold returns to the artist’s political roots. The artist had his Hong Kong debut at the Hong Kong Contemporary Art Foundation in 2016.
We are thrilled to show Leonardo Drew’s 62P-71P, a set of ten sculptural cast paper multiples. Often mistaken for accumulations of found organic objects, his sculptural editions are made of cast and pigmented cotton paper pulp, and “aged” by the artist himself.
Also highlighted will be works by George Condo, Jean Dubuffet, Keith Haring, Daniel Heidkamp, Jenny Holzer, Lee Ufan, Li Songsong, Ryan McGinness, Louise Nevelson, Yue Minjun, and Zhang Huan.
