Kotama Bouabane, Michelle O’Byrne and Michael Snow
Gallery TPW is thrilled to announce the release of Silver Editions 2011, a limited edition portfolio featuring photographs by three Canadian artists: Kotama Bouabane, Michelle O’Byrne and Michael Snow.
Silver Editions 2011 brings together a trio of images that are equal parts visually seductive and formally inventive. Though the works are produced by a diverse group of artists, each at very different stages in their careers, all three demonstrate a parallel engagement with the terms of photographic representation and a willingness to test the limits therein. The images are playful, visually pleasing and deceptively simple in their construction. And yet each one also offers up a challenge to the very terms of photographed image. They take aspects of representation to task, toying with framing, flatness and form in a way that is deeply engaging and intellectually challenging. It is a wonderful collection of images and TPW is pleased to present it to you.
Silver Editions 2011 is produced in an edition of 23 with only 20 sets available for sale at the introductory price of $1,250 per set. Each portfolio contains three unmated images on 22” x 17” photographic paper. These editions, supervised by the artist, are printed by Circuit Gallery with archival pigment inks. The ink and paper combination have a display permanence rating of over 200 years. Each image is accompanied by a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.
Silver Editions 2011 is the sixth collection in the series. The images have been generously donated by the participating artists to support Gallery TPW, a non profit artist-run centre and registered charity. All proceeds go to support Gallery TPW’s operations, programming and mandate.
Gallery TPW would like to thank the three artists for participating in this project and acknowledge the support of Dr. Kenneth Montague, Superframe, Circuit Gallery as well as the artists’ dealers.
As part of Gallery TPW’s Affordable Art Program, Silver Editions 2011 can be purchased in person or by phone and delivery is free within Canada. Your purchase can be secured with a deposit of $400 with the remaining balance due prior to delivery. Gallery TPW Collector members may purchase in advance. Sales open to the public after the launch.
