The Series and the Multiple, at YARDS

Shelly DiCello Ahearn

In his sketchbooks, Pablo Picasso often made drawings where, by pressing hard, he would create an imprint transferred to the following page. He would be greeted with a trace on the subsequent page that presented a template for changing the image later, gradually or radically.

The opportunity to create multiples and develop work through a series is best celebrated with the disciplines of ceramics, bronze, glass, photo and print. The matrix, the mold, the cast and the contact sheet all celebrate the ways in which artists have played around with the variant, the duplicate, the edition, and serial imaging. The artists in this exhibition delve into this subject of the repeated form, the motherboard, the edition and its variants, and even the wide lens of multiple ways artists work within a series.

YARDS Projects is pleased to present artists Shelly Ahern, April Bleakney, Margaret Collins, Scott Goss, Val Grossman, Elyse Herrera, Jacques P. Jackson, Earl James, Jennifer Leach, Andrea LeBlond, Seth Nagelberg, Kelly Pontoni, Kevin Snipes, Trudy Wiesenberger, and Linda Zmina.
