I'm not really a fan/follower, but that IG video was pretty neat.

Man I hope this isn’t a new trend for JJ. Could have just as easily released passage as a timed edition, maybe set it at $500 due to how complicated the printing process was. Just don’t see buying a print at that price and then spending an additional $1k of framing.

Saw this in person at Complexcon, that print was something special in person, i was speaking with the gallery owners and they are in works to do a few other prints with JJ next year. He told me it took JJ and the team about 2 months to do 60 prints :hanging: but soo awesome

Obvs aren't too familiar with avant. They seem to have a collector base with very deep pockets for just about anything they put out.

Yep, I am tempted by the new Jose Parla but that would mean no more art until next year.

Parla - First print in 10 years, and more of an HPM... beautiful piece. Was worth selling off a chunk of the collection. +1 and happy about it.

No talk of the new release?

Image
✨✂️ ✨ The Editor prunes the branching narratives of her imagination emerging from a ceramic planter on her lap. The leafy shoots reveal pairs of eyes, each highlighted with a holographic sheen and sculpted in shallow relief. The eyes refer to a painting of Saint Lucy, the protector of sight, by Francesco del Cossa from the 15th century. She wields her pruning shears carefully, letting the superfluous petals of her content fall to the cutting room floor. Within the planter are various touchstones regurgitated and left by the cranes flying in the distance. Aristotle once described in The History of Animals that the crane carries within it a touchstone that can be used to test for gold. In fact, cranes will ingest gizzard stones to aid in their digestion and deposit them in faraway regions at the end of their migrations. The Editor collects these touchstones as a way to evaluate the merit of each branching narrative, letting them steep in her witches’ brew. Just as the Editor appraises her creation through multiple passes, this limited edition print has gone through 9 separate passes through different presses in order to create all the effects. The thin, delicate lines of the drawing have been carefully retraced and embellished with silvery holographic foil, and the chop beneath has pearl, holographic, and dimensional enhancements.
