ART PAPERS PREMIERES
THREE LIMITED EDITION ARTWORKS –
AVAILABLE NOW

In celebration of our history and our future, ART PAPERS has launched a series of limited edition artworks, which debuted on the occasion of our 40th anniversary in September 2016.

Working with Dianna Settles of Atlant's Hi-Lo Press, we selected two artworks from our archive to be reproduced as lithograph prints. The third edition was created on site the evening of the anniversary dinner.




Lucinda Weil Bunnen
1974, Artist Insert, ART PAPERS Vol. 10, No. 4 (1986)
4 x 11 inches (unframed). Edition of 50.
$100

Quantity:  


Lucinda Bunnen created this silvery streetscape in 1974. It later appeared in ART PAPERS in 1987, in guest editor and noted architect Merill Elam's groundbreaking architecture and design issue—dubbed a "bagazine" because its texts and images were presented, unbound, inside a printed glassine envelope. The image of a freeway is doubled and collaged, showcasing Bunnen's experimental approach to photography. This edition translates the reflective quality of the original work through lithography onto mica-coated, opalescent paper.

Lucinda Weil Bunnen is a practicing photographer living in Atlanta, Georgia. She has exhibited nationally, internationally, and regionally, in addition to curating and jurying a number of group shows. Her work has been reviewed in The Atlanta Journal Constitution, Atlanta Magazine, The New York Times and other publications. She has co-authored three books: Movers and Shakers in Georgia published by Simon and Schuster, 1978, Scoring in Heaven, Gravestones and Cemetery Art in The American Sunbelt States published by Aperture Foundation, 1990, ALASKA Trail Tales and Eccentric Detours, 1992. In 1999, she had a 30 year retrospective, accompanied by an award-winning catalogue, titled Trail, Tales and Transformation. Her work can be found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, the Pushkin Museum in Moscow, The Smithsonian in Washington, DC, The Mint Museum in Charlotte NC, the Ackland Art Museum in Chapel Hill, NC, the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, VA, the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC, and MOCA GA and the High Museum in Atlanta, Georgia. The Lucinda Weil Bunnen Photography Gallery opened at the High Museum of Art in 2014.




Mildred Thompson
Artist Page, ART PAPERS Vol. 20 Issue 4, 1996.
14-7/8 x 11-1/4 inches (unframed). Edition of 75.
$175

Mildred Thompson created this expressionist print in 1996 for ART PAPERS' 20th anniversary "artist pages" issue, in which it was featured alongside original, page-specific works by dozens of contributing artists. We have collaborated with the Mildred Thompson Legacy Project to recreate this expressionistic black and white print, which contains a remarkable level of detail, and some of the signature lines and forms to which Thompson returned throughout her career. The work is reproduced here using stone lithography on paper selected to recall the color of newsprint, and to reference Thompson's habit of printing onto gray paper, which she used to create what she called "multiple originals"—embracing the natural variances that often occur between reproductions with printmaking.

Mildred Thompson (1936-2003) was an American artist whose work spanned four decades and multiple genres within the fine arts. During her career she also made significant contributions to the fields of creative writing and journalism, filmmaking, music, and digital media, and was a devoted educator. She was a contributor to ART PAPERS, where she also served as Associate Editor. In the early 1970s Thompson consciously eschewed representational imagery to exclusively champion the language of abstraction. Her practice transcended ever-changing art world trends and prevailing narratives prescribed by her generation, race and gender. She instead chose freedom of exploration, defying norms and refusing to be categorized. Thompson's was a personal visual language inspired by theories and systems of science and music. She sought to interpret and visualize elements and experiences invisible to the naked eye, with a particular affinity for the subjects of time, space and sound.

Kirstin Mitchell created this series of ten individually numbered works in front of a live audience, at ART PAPERS' 40th anniversary dinner. One Shot (Momentum Exercises II) (2015-ongoing) is a performance in which the artist uses a bow and arrow to pierce her medium, suspended in mid-air, at close range. The action, and the resulting works, cross Mitchell's performance and studio practices, and expand the notion of what it means to technologically reproduce an artwork—here editioned not through print, but through the mechanics of the bow and arrow.

Kirstin Mitchell is a multi-media artist living in Atlanta, GA. Mitchell performed a solo show at the Atlanta Contemporary in March 2016. She was awarded a Dashboard Fellowship at A.I.R. Serenbe in August 2015. Kirstin has performed with the support of the Franklin Furnace Fund and the Brooklyn International Performance Art Festival. She has shown in galleries and art centers in Atlanta, New Orleans, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and abroad in Vienna, Austria and Northern Italy. Mitchell's work has been reviewed in Art Papers and Flash Art magazines.
