Mike Slack Art Print 4, Untitled (2017 - Salton Sea, CA)
by Mike Slack
Little Paper Planes is pleased to introduce our June 2017 artist, Mike Slack, and to offer six exclusive prints of his work.
Los Angeles photographer Mike Slack began his photo practice with Polaroids. Within that casual instant format, Slack’s work is a rigorous approach to seeing things anew, to looking carefully at space and place. Frequently presented in photobooks, Slack’s carefully-edited photos invite scrutiny to uncover themes and scraps of narrative. He says of his process, “Look first, think later,” which serves just as well to describe the experience of viewing at his photographs.
The large format edition are 36 x 48" posters 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. Please take care when handling the poster.
The sizes reflect actual paper size, not image size. There is a small white border. Please note a printed image can vary in color than what you see on your computer monitor.
The prints come in an edition of 50.
This print is exclusive to Little Paper Planes.
