We are pleased to announce the publication of The Carriage Trade a new three dimensional lithograph by Red Grooms.
In The Carriage Trade Grooms once again casts his acute eye on life in New York City. He captures an autumn street scene with a row of colorful carriage houses on Manhattan's Upper East Side. The scene is busy with neighborhood activity that includes school children, a jogger with a leashed dog, a man blowing leaves, a delivery person with a cart full of packages, a cyclist and others.
The Carriage Trade has been printed on two sheets of white Rives BFK paper in fourteen colors from thirteen aluminum plates, hand-drawn and painted by the artist. The edition consists of 45, plus proofs. After printing each sheet has been cut, scored, folded, assembled by Roseanne Colachis and mounted in a wood frame which measures 29 5/8 x 37 x 5". The publication price is $8,000, plus packing and shipping (subject to change).
Grooms also completed a series of colorful monotype collages, a tribute to Henri Matisse. The "Matisse Cut Outs" portray the artist working in his studio on his well known cut out paper collages. The monotypes have actual cut out pieces of paper and paper tacks collaged to the prints to make them dimensional.
Please visit us in Booth 318, November 4th-8th, 2015. We will be showing The Carriage Trade, new Grooms Matisse monotypes and new editions by John Buck, Rodney Carswell, Enrique Chagoya, Dianna Frid, Yvonne Jacquette, Hung Liu, Hiroki Morinoue and Betty Woodman.
