Robert Otto Epstein Print 1, Pattern for Sleeveless Cardigan
Little Paper Planes is pleased to introduce our second January 2013 artist, Robert Otto Epstein, and to offer five exclusive prints of his work as well as four original drawings that were used for the prints.
How do we wrap our minds around shifting notions of form and function; the china cup too delicate to use, the book propping up a table leg? Robert Otto Epstein plays with this fluidity. Painting and drawing with materials you’d find at a hardware store, he carefully re-renders schematic patterns. These patterns, in turn, come from instructions for machined and do-it-yourself textiles, both ornamental and functional. Deftly folding categories upon themselves, Epstein points to an open, freeing notion of what it means to make something, and beyond that, to express oneself.
These prints are 8.5 x 11" and are offered individually. They are printed with Epson Ultra Chrome archival inks on Hahnemuhle German etching paper. The sizes reflect actual paper size, not image size. Each print is hand numbered, in an edition of 50, along with Robert’s signature on the back of each print. Each print also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity printed on the back as well. This print is exclusive to Little Paper Planes.
