“print 1 of 1” – exclusive ownership of works of art

الرجاء الضغط هنا للغة العربية

presented here are photographic records of another world, a world that it very real, though we have forgotten how to see it. these works of art illustrate the way of reason that developed our minds and bodies across the ages. they teach us how to see again, to think with our hearts, and love with our minds. they urge us to remember what we are: homo spiritualis, not homo sapiens. the photographic evidence of the ethereal reminds us all to pause, reassess, exhale, and be excellent to our planet, for we were created in it, of it, and by it.

the structure of the “print 1 of 1” program is such that only one print of a singular work of art is ever produced.

the sole print is made as an intaglio print – an original. a work that has been manually created, inked, and printed by a master printer. never reproduced, only created, sustainably handcrafted by both printer and artist. the work is entirely unique, starting with the pigment selection and grinding. rather than using a photomechanical reproduction process, the printer employs a number of processes to build colour and depth through the use of handmade pigments. this is an emotional, spiritual and physically demanding task, as an artistic symbiosis is required to envision the correct colour formulation, as manually ground pigments require a precise application to achieve the maximum intensity of hue and saturation. the process is long, arduous, and purely original. the end result is a print that contains a true presence, which far surpasses a colour print made with an automated process. collectors of prints have appreciated these works as much as paintings due to the visionary technique behind creating purely unique, singular prints, which includes the destruction of any capability to repeat it. therefore, a documentation sheet and proof of erasure is provided, ensuring that only one print exists, and will never be remade. therein lies the real value of the “print 1 of 1” program.

i have entered this world of collaborative printmaking with jon cone at cone editions press in vermont. jon has agreed to work on each project as an interpreter, turning hand-ground pigments into concentrated inks, with large-scale intaglio and gravure plates, as well as an etching press. he will work with platinum, palladium, gold, and sensitised pigments in the darkroom if needed, and construct the work to make it tangible in this world. the entire project from inception to final print will be available in a specially designed portfolio which contains the entirety of the process. the cancellation proof demonstrating the destruction of the printing plates is included in the sale, as well as all of the signed trial, state, and working proofs, with the end result being the final bon-à-tirer print.

each project is necessarily unique. jon’s concept is that our entire printmaking collaboration together, including the experimental and nearly completed proofs, tells a story. it is an opportunity to own an entire printmaking experience that will never be duplicated and exists only within the portfolio. you can study this penultimate process, curate your ow exhibition, or frame only the final bon-à-tirer print, secure in the knowledge that you are the sole owner of the entire portfolio and the journey it encompasses.

the journey: a man, for his own reasons, walks alone. something makes him raise his camera and he makes a negative in a particular manner. the entities, for their own reasons, show themselves to him communicating messages. the journey continues as the man sits alone and generates the work of art according to the energy of the negative and the image emerges in the photograph. emergence. and onward the journey continues in the making of the original print, and now the work of art hangs on a collectors wall. the journey is complete. or is it? for, now the collector’s the journey begins as she or he begins to understand the layers of symbolism and meaning revealed therein. does she or he, over time, begin to understand the message?
