Michael Reeder - Observed Observer
Michael was a joy to work with on this commission. Its giving my favorite piece a run for its money.

ImageSAINER by Craig ONeil, on Flickr
Sainer - Kudowa II - Completes the ETAM collection (for now)

Retna - Say My Name, You Can See Me. I honestly purchased these for investment. I am not the hugest Retna fan. These however are masterfully done prints, Ive ended up loving them.

Justin Favela (to be honest, I cant recall the title) - Picked this up from David B Smith, each year for Basel I have been buying something from him that is way outside my normal collecting.
These are based on paintings by José María Velasco, which Justin as reimagined via his paper process. This one is based on this image ImageJosé_María_Velasco_-_Vuelta_al_río_(detalle) by Craig ONeil, on Flickr'

Juan Travieso - Continuous Time Markov - This like the Reeder were done for the exhibition we did this year. I love working with Juan, hes willing to allow you to collaborate a little, and reworks comps to come to the best realization of the shared vision. If you enjoy the work, I highly recommend working with him. Sorry for the crappy pictures, one gets the color right, the other shows the composition better but with less detail.

Yeah, little shout out.

Easily the #1 question we get about the piece while it’s up at scope.

The Bezt is big and beautiful. A wonderful painting to be able to view on a daily basis.
