Artist Jimmy Limit will launch the “American” edition of JIMMY LIMIT SPRING/SUMMER 2012 and present an installation in the storefront window. Join us for a launch on Thursday May 30, 6-8 PM, with a reading from the artist.
In creating the series of images that would become SPRING/SUMMER 2012, Limit selected objects from dollar and hardware stores, buying items that didn’t have a clear purpose but that appealed for their formal qualities. The artists’ book features a series of sculptural arrangements parodying the plain-stated, non-aesthetic of a commercial Uline catalog, but composed in absurd ways that pays deep attention to color and form.
Limit’s stock-photo aesthetic brings commercial photography into the realm of fine-art considerations, presenting a complex sense of what we can call truthful reproduction in these contrived, post-processed still-lifes.
The new edition features a new cover and is offset printed in an edition of 50.
Jimmy Limit is represented by Clint Roenisch Gallery in Toronto.
