Cybele Lyle Print 5
by Cybele Lyle
Little Paper Planes is pleased to introduce our first April 2012 artist, Cybele Lyle, and to offer six exclusive prints of her work.
Cybele Lyle gently prods the spaces that surround her - the walls, the horizon, the surface of the sea - shifting them until they open into exhilarating, destabilizing alternate environments. Focusing on the places she finds herself, Lyle’s collages, sculptures and video installations don’t offer escape into another reality, but a shift in perspective that illuminates what already surrounds us.
These are large format 36 x 48" 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.
This print is shipped in a mailing tube.
Each print comes in an edition of 50, all hand numbered on the back.
