LACMA's The Serial Impulse at Gemini G.E.L. open to the public
September 11, 2016 - January 2, 2017

The highly anticipated exhibition The Serial Impulse at Gemini G.E.L. is now on view and open to the public at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in the Resnick Pavilion. "LACMA premiered Gemini's very first edition--a series of prints by Josef Albers--and has since collected and exhibited their editions. On the occasion of Gemini's 50th Anniversary, The Serial Impulse showcases 15 print series, from seminal works by Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Fank Stella to more recent series by Richard Serra and Julie Mehretu." -Press Release, LACMA.

Elyse Grinstein, 1929-2016

Gemini co-founder Elyse Grinstein passed away on July 2 at age 87. An avid patron of the arts, architect, mother of three, art collector, and mainstay of the Los Angeles art scene of the 60's and 70s, Elyse was "a true humanist who was always exploring new ideas in her work and giving other artists a safe harbor to do the same in theirs. Her generosity and love permeated through the art world and made us all better people for knowing her," Frank Gehry remarked. Our thoughts are with the Grinstein family.

Visit Gemini G.E.L. at Art Basel, Booth E5, Hall 2.0. Featuring new and upcoming editions by John Baldessari, Tacita Dean, Ed Ruscha, Analia Saban, and Richard Serra. Click here for a full checklist.

We are pleased to announce Gemini G.E.L.'s first collaboration with Analia Saban

Los Angeles artist Analia Saban's dynamic and compelling investigation of materials tests the limits of painting, sculpture, and printmaking in new and enterprising ways. Since mid-2015, Saban has been working at Gemini G.E.L. making etchings and monotypes. One body of work takes domestic machines as its inspiration, deconstructing and examining the various internal parts. Another series digs into the process of printmaking by challenging the physical properties of ink on paper, exploring the boundaries between the handmade and the machine-made.


Born in Argentina and living in Los Angeles, Saban is currently an Artist in Residence at the Getty Research Institute. In addition to her first exhibition at Gemini G.E.L. this fall, Saban's work will be the subject of a solo exhibition at the Blaffer Art Museum at the University of Houson, Texas. Other recent exhibitions include Prospect 3 New Orleans, Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans and An Appetite for Painting, National Museum of Norway, Oslo. Recipient of the Norton Museum's Made in LA group exhibition in 2012. Her work is in the collections of the Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College; the Hammer Museum at UCLA in Los Angeles; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida; Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris; and Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

We are pleased to announce Gemini G.E.L.'s first collaboration with acclaimed British artist Tacita Dean

Mark your calendars: the series of fifteen lithographs which Dean has been developing at Gemini G.E.L., titled LA Exuberance, will be included in the Gemini booth at Art Basel in June. Previewed in New York as part of Dean's springtime exhibition at the Marian Goodman Gallery, we will exhibit the project later this year once the editions are completed.

From October 2014 through June 2015, Dean was the Getty Research Institute Artist in Residence, which brought her to Los Angeles and helped advance her relationship with Gemini. Highly regarded, Dean has been the recipient of several prizes including the Hugo Boss Prize (2006) and the Kurt Schwitters Prize (2009). She participated in the Venice Biennale (2003, 2005 and 2013) and dOCUMENTA 13 (2012). Recent solo exhibitions include Fundacion Botin, Santander (2013); Instituto Moreira Salles, Rio de Janeiro (2013); New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York (2012); MUMOK, Vienna (2011); and Tate Modern Turbine Hall (2011).

Skowhegan notes: "Celebrated internationally for large-scale, gestural paintings, the Ethiopian-born artist addresses both the formal concerns of color and line and the social concerns of power, history, globalism, and personal narrative. A MacArthur Fellowship recipient, Mehretu is an advocate for LGBT rights, Ethiopian culture and films, and a founding member of Denniston Hill, an artist residency in the southern Catskills." Congratulations Julie!

Frank Gehry: Recipient of the 2016 Leonore and Walter Annenberg for Diplomacy through the Arts
April 18, 2016 - The Foundation for Art and Preservation in Embassies (FAPE)

The legendary Los Angeles architect received the award on Monday, April 18th in Washington D.C. at FAPE's 30th anniversary Annual Event, hosted by Secretary of State John Kerry at the State Department's Diplomatic Reception Rooms. Says Gehry, "It is a great honor to receive the 2016 Annenberg award from FAPE, an organization that believes that art and design can foster a depper appreciation of all cultures. This is a principle that is central to my work as well, so it is wonderful to be included in FAPE's legacy of cultural diplomacy through art.

The Serial Impulse at Gemini G.E.L. at the National Gallery of Art
October 4, 2015 - February 7, 2016

For centuries artists have made multi-part series, undertaking subjects on a scale not possible in a single work. This engagement was especially prevalent in the 1960s, as artists dedicated to conceptual, minimalist, and pop approaches explored the potential of serial procedures and structures. Many prominent artists since then have produced serial projects at the renowned Los Angeles print workshop and publisher Gemini G.E.L. The exhibition will showcase 17 such series created at Gemini by 17 artists over the past five decades. It will include seminal early works by artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, and Frank Stella as well as more recent serial projects by John Baldessari, Julie Mehretu, Richard Serra, and others.

Prentice says, "Richard Serra is obviously revered for his sculptures but few people know that the artist is also an incredibly gifted printmaker.

Weyl will be exhibiting 25 monumental etchings that are richly textured and really push the boundaries of printmaking. A must see show!"

JONATHAN BOROFSKY
My Mother's Words and God is a Feeling

2011

In 2010, Gemini G.E.L. published two prints by Jonathan Borofsky, titled My Mother’s Words and God is a Feeling. Well-known to be the subject of his own works, Borofsky injects himself into these two through the selection of phrases that are very personal to the artist and by rendering the words in his own handwriting. For My Mother's Words, Borofsky, ever- interested in understanding his own pain and happiness, explains, "Several days before my mother died, I was sitting at her bedside - just talking about things. At one point, I casually asked her if she had any words she wanted to leave behind. Without taking any time to think about it, she answered 'Be Happy, Do the Best You Can, Be Good and Kind'." An edition of 45, this two-color screenprint has a softer quality than his earlier editioned works that utilize the same minimal, strictly text-based imagery such as Object of Magic (1989) and 31247** (1991). In the case of My Mother's Words, the cursive handwriting creates an intimacy with the artist, whereas the earlier works were executed in a blunt, sans-serif type that maintains an impersonal quality. God is a Feeling similarly employs text as imagery, though in a more painterly and gestural manner. Like his innovative work of the 1970s and ‘80s, this print continues his exploration of the philosophical and psychological values inherent in the human spirit. Spiritual well-being, wholeness, and contemplation of the nature of the universe have always been important themes in his work. A two-color lithograph, God is a Feeling is a small edition of 25.

Both prints are currently being exhibited in the gallery's current exhibition, New and Recent Publications, from April 21 until May 27, 2011.


My Mother's Words, 2010


God is a Feeling, 2010



JOHN BALDESSARI
Nose/Silhouette

2011

In the series of six colorful and dynamic prints, Nose/Silhouette (2010), John Baldessari continues his investigation of isolated body parts, much as he did in his previous Gemini G.E.L. series Noses & Ears, Etc. of 2006, and Foot and Stocking (With Big Toe Exposed) of 2010. In Foot and Stocking, the artist focused on the exposed big toe of his studio assistants' right feet. Now the artist shifts his attention back up to the face, particularly on the nose, in order to create the Nose/Silhouette series. For each print, Baldessari appropriates a color or black-and-white photograph as source material for the nose, which is then printed lithographically over a silk-screened, color-block silhouette of a face. While all six prints are similarly created, each image maintains a strong sense of individuality with their various bright and boldly-colored silhouettes and uniquely- shaped noses. An edition size of 50, these engaging, small scale prints (18 x 14 inches each) are terrifically representative of the type of imagery that John Baldessari has come to be known for throughout his career.

The entire series of six prints are currently being exhibited in the gallery's current exhibition, New and Recent Publications, from April 21 until May 27, 2011.

RICHARD SERRA
Junction #1-13

2011

Enjoying a collaboration that spans almost four decades, Richard Serra has been creating prints almost exclusively at the Los Angeles based artists' workshop Gemini G.E.L. In 2010, Serra completed a series of 13 etchings titled Junction, exploring what can loosely be described as an "x" shape. With edition sizes of 50, these small-scale prints (16 x 18 inches each) took a dramatic turn away from the large-scale and ink-heavy series Weights and Levels, published earlier in the same year. Junction is also a departure from his larger body of work, with his surprisingly playful and expressive spirit that is typically absent not only in his printmaking but in his drawing and sculptural works as well. Using molten Paintstik, Serra's signature medium of choice, he drew each of the thirteen images directly onto a mylar sheet. That image was then transferred onto an etching plate, which then delivered the rich, saturated and highly textured surface onto creamy, beige-colored paper.

All thirteen Junction prints as well as another new edition, Cycle, are currently being exhibited in the gallery's current exhibition, New and Recent Publications, from April 21 until May 27, 2011.

Gemini G.E.L. co-founder Sidney B. Felsen
honored by International Fine Print Dealers Association

November 2, 2010

The IFPDA celebrated its 20th anniversary at the Cosmopolitan Club in New York on Tuesday evening, November 2nd, and also honored Sidney B. Felsen, Robert K. Newman and Clifford S. Ackley for their dedication and commitment to furthering the understanding and appreciation of prints among collectors and the general public.  The festive event included introductions from Gemini artist Ann Hamilton, Print Publisher Diane Villani and Curator Barbara Shapiro for the respective honorees.  In attendance as a tribute to Felsen were several Gemini artists including Hamilton, Julie Mehretu, James Rosenquist, Joel Shapiro and Richard Tuttle.  Also attending were Felsen’s wife, Joni Moisant Weyl, his daughter jewelry designer Suzanne Felsen, her husband Kevin Swanson, and Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Weyl gallery staff Chris Santa Maria, Jae-Min Hwang and Kalyn Olson. 

 




 

ANN HAMILTON
ciliary

November 2010

Ann Hamilton has created a new work titled ciliary (2010), a uniquely-formed assemblage.  Paper, lithographically printed with a seismic pattern of lines drawn by the artist, is folded and formed into a circle. From its center emerges a swirl of fabric.  The result is a work that has many visual associations -  a large circle-skirt, an Elizabethan neck collar, an eye.   Hamilton is producing a total of 19 of these works that will each vary in printed and fabric color combinations. 

ciliary will make its New York debut in November at the IFPDA Print Fair, accompanied by Hamilton’s other new body of work – a series of six prints called visite.  Photographic images are screenprinted onto tall, almost scroll-like sheets of Japanese handmade paper, and additional elements – a lithographically printed chine colléd “o” and colored fabric – are collaged onto the surface.  The source for the photographs are cartes de visite, 19th century albumen prints the size of a visiting (or calling) card, which first captured Hamilton’s attention during her collaborative project with Mass MoCA and the Historic New England archive.  Created in small editions of 25 each, in these prints Hamilton expands on her use of the miniature camera first seen at Gemini in her face to face (2003) prints.

Two unique editions of ciliary as well as visite ii are currently being exhibited in the gallery's current exhibition, New and Recent Publications from April 21 until May 27, 2011.

JULIE MEHRETU
Auguries

October 2010

Internationally-acclaimed artist Julie Mehretu is known best for her large-scale gestural paintings built up through layers of acrylic paint on canvas overlaid with mark-making using pencil, ink, and thick streams of paint.  In her first-ever collaborative project with the Gemini workshop in Los Angeles, Mehretu has seamlessly translated her painterly language to print with Auguries, a 12-panel aquatint.  Spanning over 7 x 15 feet, Auguries presents a landscape of frenetic marks, thin colored lines, emphatic ink spatterings and cool gray washes that unite in a superbly stunning work of art.  Auguries made its debut at the Gallery Met, the visual art exhibition space at The Metropolitan Opera, as part of Mehretu’s solo exhibition Notations after the "Ring" on view from September 27th to January 29, 2011.

JOHN BALDESSARI
Foot and Stocking (With Big Toe Exposed)

October 2010

John Baldessari is internationally acclaimed and acknowledged as an innovator of Conceptual Art. These dramatic, large-scale (50 x 33 inches) prints are a continuation of Baldessari’s exploration of isolated body parts, unconventional in the realm of fine art. Through careful manipulation of scale and perspective, Baldessari has created a delightful and intriguing presentation of an otherwise banal subject, and has titled each to correspond with his studio staff-member’s name, as if they were portraits. Much like his successful previous Noses & Ears series, Baldessari surprises with a juxtaposition of photography and bold sampling of color-blocking. With Foot and Stocking (With Big Toe Exposed), the viewer is equally seduced by the exposed toenail as by the larger ominous form that has been concealed.

The six bold and colorful prints recently published by the Los Angeles-based artists’ workshop, Gemini G.E.L. will be on view at Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl from October 7th to November 6th. In addition, selections from this series will be presented November 3-7 at the IFPDA Print Fair. Furthermore, the New York debut of Baldessari's Foot and Stocking series will coincide with the opening of Pure Beauty at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the first major U.S. exhibition in twenty years to survey over five decades of Baldessari's work.

On October 14, Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl will host a reception for the artist from 6 to 8 pm. The artist will also be signing copies of the recently released catalogue raisonné The Prints of John Baldessari: A Catalogue Raisonné, 1971-2007 by Sharon Coplan Hurowitz (published by Hudson Hills Press). Please RSVP to info@joniweyl.com.

FRANK GEHRY
New Lithographs

October 2007

Among the most innovative architects in history, Frank Gehry's buildings seem to defy the natural laws of physics. He makes solid materials appear fluid, and his buildings have been compared to dancers and sculpture. Gehry pays no attention to precedence or the "rules" in architecture that bind his colleagues and predecessors. Scarcely anywhere in his oeuvre is a traditional grid structure; pretending never to worry about whether or not a structure will stand, he designs without traditional restraints and finds a way to make his buildings sound.

For Gehry, drawing is inextricably linked with the germination of his ideas and design process. Unlike traditional, utilitarian architectural drawings, Gehry's fluid, lyrical lines simply convey a loose relationship of space and form.

Working with Gemini G.E.L., for whom he designed an early building in 1979, Gehry has recently completed eight new lithographs featuring his architectural sketches. Gemini provided Gehry with litho-friendly drawing materials so that he could sketch when ideas flowed. The resulting eight lithographs are intimate sketches of chairs, houses, the IAC Building in lower Manhattan, and the Guggenheim's new Abu Dhabi museum, that epitomize the spirit of what has defined him as an architect.

 

 

 

BRUCE NAUMAN
Infrared Outtakes and Soft Ground Etchings

September 2007

One of the most versatile and influential contemporary artists, Bruce Nauman moves effortlessly between sculpture, video, film, sound installation, drawing and printmaking. Since the 1960s, he has experimented with emerging technology, including video, holography, neon, infrared film, as well as a wide range of printmaking techniques. His two recent series published by the Los Angeles-based artists workshop, Gemini G.E.L., Soft Ground Etchings and Infrared Outtakes, find their source in early photographs taken on infrared film.

In 1968, Nauman approached photographer and friend, Jack Fulton, and asked him to document a session of him contorting his face with his hand using the then newly-developed process of holography. These photographs became the source images of Nauman's iconic series, Studies for Holograms (1970), published by Castelli Gallery. In preparation for the exhibition, A Rose Has No Teeth: Bruce Nauman in the 1960s, curator Constance M. Lewallen unearthed some of underexposed images captured 40 years ago in that photo session and Nauman worked with Fulton to breathe new life into them digitally. Nauman approached Gemini G.E.L., where he had been making prints since the early 70s, to publish the series Infrared Outtakes as part of the workshop's 40th Anniversary program. These four inkjet prints are Gemini's first series of digital photographs.

Inspired by these images and a return to the Gemini workshop, Nauman began his work on the series of six Soft Ground Etchings. Soft ground is an etching technique for drawing a softer, more textured line similar to charcoal, crayon and pencil. The soft ground process allows the artist to draw directly on paper offering a more familiar feel than drawing on a polished copper surface. For this reason, these prints rival the sensuality and fluidity of his drawing. Initially, he drew Neck Pull, Hands Only, and Cockeye Lips. He returned to the workshop armed with images from Studies for Holograms-(Pinched Lips, Pulled Cheeks and Squeezed Lips) to create 3 more editions for this series. Originally conceived to be black and white, as the project progressed Nauman decided that each image needed a colored background and an aquatint was applied to achieve the effect.

 

 

 

 

ED RUSCHA
Cityscapes

June 2007

It's difficult to talk about Ed Ruscha's work without mentioning the west coast. A seminal American artist, he is more specifically, a progeny of Los Angeles. He left his home-state of Oklahoma to attend Chouinard Art Institute (now Cal Arts) with the intention of becoming a commercial artist, and this has influenced his work ever since. An excellent draughtsman, he's always been drawn to clean compositions and has used text in his work since the 1950's.

Ruscha's new series of prints, entitled Cityscapes, are marvelous examples of this artist's wicked and rather dark, complex sense of humor. For each of the five lithographs, Ruscha has laid-down a neutral "texture" background, made via the photographic transfer of various fabrics. Redacted from these neutral backgrounds are crime notes, either imagined or actual, which are relocated to the bottom margin. The phrases are both menacing and amusing, such as "STICK UP - DON'T MOVE - SMILE" or "I HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN YOUR TESTIMONY PUT ME IN HERE". The font is small and very plain; its format is slyly suggestive of an eye-chart, daring the recipient to read the message. These are Ruscha at his best - deftly manipulating a seemingly banal arrangement of imagery and text into an engaging end-result.

RICHARD SERRA
Paths and Edges

June 2007

At 67, Richard Serra is at the top of his game. With the permanent installation of 8 massive steel sculptures in Spain at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, numerous public and private commissions, and his wildly acclaimed mid-career retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, his chapter in the annals of art history is guaranteed. In addition to being a sculptor, Serra has been making prints at Gemini G.E.L. in Los Angeles for over thirty years. He returns to the workshop often to draw and to collaborate with Master Printer Xavier Fumat, leaving behind greasy remnants of Paintstik on every surface of the artist's studio and exciting new images.

Following his 2006 series, Between the Torus and the Sphere, Serra returned to the workshop in the spring of 2007 to create Paths and Edges. The 13 prints in this series are smaller in scale than the preceding series but have much bolder lines. Filling the sheet like a magnified close-up, the heavily textured etched imagery covers much of the buff-colored paper, with only small slivers separating the curved black bands.

John Baldessari
Noses & Ears, Etc.: The Gemini Series
New Editions

September 2006

John Baldessari's new project, Noses & Ears, Etc: The Gemini Series, begins with found photographic images, as is typical of his work. Baldessari has said, “For me, there is an image junk pile, and I’m a scavenger…. I’m trying to put them back together in some way, reassembling them.” He goes on to admit that he has always been interested in the spaces between things, and this becomes very apparent in these new works. Baldessari uses solid blocks of color to create silhouettes, a backdrop for the 3-dimensional noses and ears that are collaged onto the surfaces. Why noses and ears? Baldessari has typically obscured the faces of his subjects with colored spheres, but by doing so he draws attention them. Now he's simply putting his interest in noses and ears front-and-center, literally. Baldessari has also said he was amused by Gogol’s short story The Nose, in which a man's nose secedes from his face to embark on its own adventures. Baldessari, now in his mid-70's, clearly proves with this series that, like Gogol's character, he has many new adventures of his own yet to explore.

These new prints are fabricated in much the same way as his Person with Guitar series from 2004. Each piece is a multi-layer, multi-color screenprint that is showcased beautifully in a black lacquered frame built to the artist's specifications.
