Christopher David Ryan Print 1, Big Bang
Please welcome Christopher David Ryan to the first collection of Little Paper Planes’s large format prints, The Big Exclusives- Summer Collection.
We wanted to offer prints as a curated collection so that each work is its own entity as well as creating a dialogue with one of the other pieces. We worked with each artist to choose both a color and black and white piece. As we began to receive the work, small connections actualized with underlying similarities. There is the obvious spatial qualities, however a deeper feeling about place or the search of finding ones place seem to be both as a literal notation and an abstracted moment. There is a sense of searching for our own private retreat whether it be within a quiet pause between thoughts, watching the sunset, gazing at the stars or hoping and wishing for miracles. They each highlight in their own way a non-linear navigation throughout the everyday.
These are large format 36 x 36" prints that are more "poster like" and are offered individually. They are printed with a Black and White Laser printer in halftone on 20lb. Matte paper. (20lb paper is thin and Laser prints have a photocopy feel.) This kind of printing is often used for architectural and engineering prints so they are a lo-fi aesthetic. Halftone printing is similar in how newspapers are produced. When looking closely, they appear to be more dot like though when looking from afar is when you see the image. These pieces are meant to be viewed that way, not up close.
Also pure black printing on a Laser printer can have some inconsistencies.
This print is shipped in a mailing tube.
Each print comes in an edition of 50, all hand numbered with a printed signature of the artist under the image.
