Editions for ArtThrob asked a select group of young contemporary South African artists to make a limited edition print. Each artist worked with a printer of their choice to produce an edition of 25 prints with the first 10 prints available in an exclusive collector’s portfolio.
All works are sized 505 x 665mm and presented in a custom-made archival clamshell box. The prints in the portfolio include the following:
Georgina Gratrix Flowers for I.G. produced with printmaker Sara Verity of Warren Editions in Cape Town. Remarkably for a silkscreen, Verity has succeeded in preserving the particular detail of Gratrix’s gestural marks made predominantly in lithographic crayon.
Athi-Patra Ruga ...elipsis in three parts in which Ruga activated his own body as both image matrix and printing press in a three-part performance that saw the live creation of the print within a gallery context. This print edition is thus the trace of a live performance with each print a unique image.
James Webb The Collector is a rarely seen paper multiple produced in the path of Hurricane Irene at Dieu Donne Papermill in Hells Kitchen, New York City by Genevieve Wood. Embedded in the paper is a traditional relief watermark.
Dineo Seshee Bopape Chat-Scat was printed at Caversham Press by Malcolm Christian and assisted by Alex Shabalala in KwaZulu-Natal where Bopape worked in residence.
Cameron Platter Sex Slaves engaged Cameron’s process of digital collage via a translation into silkscreen with a very richly inked, high-gloss finish in the final print.
