William Villalongo – $5

Reckless Eyeballing is an eleven-color screenprint that measures 5”x 7” closed and comes with a silver envelope. Available for $5, the card is a fundraiser for the Printshop.

“Like the surrealists, Villalongo might also believe that exorcising the imaginative faculties of the ‘unconscious mind’ to the attainment of a dream-like state can be ultimately ‘truer’ than, everyday reality. Also, like the Surrealists in the wake of the first World War, Villalongo also believes that a more open and true perception of reality can provoke change—political, social and most importantly, personal” states Franklin Sirmans in a recent exhibition catalogue.

Villalongo first collaborated with the Printshop in 2006 when he was awarded a Publishing Residency. He has recently participated in exhibitions at El Museo Del Barrio, James Cohan Gallery, IPCNY, and Exit Art, among others.

Mary Temple – $5

“Front Room, Neon Light”

Temple received the Printshop’s Special Editions Residency in 2006, for which she created a series of six screenprints titled Light Describing a Room. Temple recollected Wittgenstein’s statement that if eternity is taken to mean timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present. In musing on this idea, her aim was to “make prints that could conflate a single moment with the way time flows through the present cinematically.”

The work created during the Residency was featured in exhibitions here at the Printshop, at the IPCNY, in “Mary Temple, Works on Paper” the Trois Gallery at the Savannah College of Art and Design, Atlanta,GA, and was included in an exhibition at the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore, MD.
