Artist Gordon Hall has produced a new limited edition sculptural artwork on the occasion of Printed Matter’s participation in Upstate Art Weekend 2021. Sash is a sixty inch long and two inch wide double-sided screen print draped over a wall-mounted peg. Much of Hall’s work is invested in everyday objects that contain, carry, and hold, which often emerges as sculptures that carry multiple readings. Sash is a portrait of a hanging bathrobe sash, abstracted into a hand-drawn gradient that is both drawing and sculpture. This edition is inspired by work from Hall’s recent exhibition END OF DAY at Hesse Flatow, New York. The purchase of this editioned work includes installation instructions.
