12 x 18 inches - Edition of 40
No. 1 is a collaboration between artists Bryan Meador and Lauraly Grossman exploring a compelling intersection between painting and printmaking.
Facilitated by Zephyr Projects, No. 1 is the final product of a multilayered process. The original artwork by Bryan Meador is a digital collage made from acrylic paintings, a technique Meador has been utilizing for the past two years. “I’m interested in exploring what painting means in our time,” says Meador. "For example, what qualifies a painting as such? Artists working in the digital age have tools that simply did not exist before. So what does that mean for a painter today?”
Lauraly Grossman had long been intrigued by the challenge of silkscreening paint strokes. When she encountered Meador's original artwork, she saw an opportunity to approach that challenge, paying close attention to variations in texture and color. The artists worked together to match the original colors in ink for printing, which was completed by Grossman. “I still feel compelled by the fact that this painting had never existed on paper before being reproduced for this collaboration," says Grossman. “To me, this work is part of a larger dialogue about reproduction and authenticity in art. While that dialogue has gone on for decades, new technology is helping the conversation evolve.”
This edition of 40 prints is available exclusively through Zephyr Projects. Each print is made by hand and signed by both artists. There are minor variations between prints — no two are exactly alike.
