Editions in Two & Three Dimensions 1969 - 1995 / "The Lament Series" and "The Bounding Dog Series"

Claes Oldenburg: Editions in Two and Three Dimensions 1969-1995" opens on October 26th at Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl. Claes Oldenburg traditionally has realized most all of his ideas first by drawing in notebooks, small and always on hand, then transforming many of these ideas further into larger scale. The presentation of Oldernburg's (two-dimensional) prints and related (three-dimensional) sculptire gives the viewer a chance to recognize the important role that this through process plays in his work.

A Series of Hand-Drawn Lithographs from 1979 - 1980
September 14, 1995October 21, 1995

Ten new editions by David Hockney, "A Series of Hand-Drawn Lithographs from 1979-80" are on view at Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl, September 14-October 21, 1995. David Hockney's masterfully elegant line and his ability to engage the viewer with the subject matter is most evident in his portraiture style. Shunning comissioned portraits, he chooses to draw close personal friends and family.

An exhibition of eleven new works by Bruce Nauman, Fingers and Holes, opens February 28, 1995 at Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl. As the title implies, the monoprint, seven small etchings, and three lithographs in this series all use the subject of hands as predominant imagery. 

References to the human hand abound in Nauman's work, from fingerprints left on sculpture in the 1960, to photographs of his own hands and feet in 1978, to more recent works in neon.

Booster and 7 Studies / Dictionary Series

Booster and 7 Studies by Robert Rauschenberg opens at Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl on October 28th, and will be on view through November 26th, 1994. This series of eight prints, Rauschenberg's first project with Gemini G.E.L. in 1967, was a groundbreaking collaboration. His concept to incorporate x-rays, photographic material, rubbings from printed images and direct drawing was itself a technological breakthrough in printmaking. Yet it was the size and scale of the "Booster" print that pushed printmaking to its limits at this early stage.

David Hockney
"Some New Prints" and "Some More New Prints"
September 7, 1994October 22, 1994

"Some New Prints" and "Some More New Prints" by David Hockney opens at Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl on September 7th and will be on view through October 22nd. There are 12 editions in Hockney's most recent collaboration with Gemini G.E.L., the Los Angeles-based artists' workshop. In these newest works, Hockney pursues what he refers to as "narrative abstraction"; the works at first appear abstract but they have a visual theme woven into them, with references to outdoor landscapes, interior environments, and personal, emotional "landscapes".
