I am not sure why people here are so hostile and defensive on this. Also I do not think that many of the defenders that are cool with this because they get a Geddes understand this could have a negative long term affect.

I loved Red Cosmo but could never afford the asking price. Hypostasis is obviously an almost identical print, and for someone who wanted Red Cosmo, that is great (in fact, aesthetically speaking, I actually prefer Hypo to Red Cosmo, the position of the body looks more interesting to me, along with the two doves, elicits ideas of angelic ascension).

I think the hostility comes from the emotion that it is the "haves" that are negatively affected by Hypo while the "have nots" are positively affected in the sense they can now own a gorgeous and prestigious piece at an affordable price, and are defensive and aggressive that the "haves" would will it to never happen. It's a classic conflict.

On the other hand, Red Cosmo will now become a more exclusive piece. Sure value may be affect in the short run, but ultimately it will be the piece that only people with more money can realistically acquire.


I can see why there is tension from both sides of the fence, but personally speaking, the release of Hypo is nothing but good news for me. I look forward to seeing it in person and have already begun to brainstorm potential framing layouts.

Btw, very entertaining last couple of pages. ;) :pint:

My only thought on this is that I understand the disappointment but Jeremy didn't sell red#1 for 1,300 dollars, someone else did. Jeremy sold both prints for pretty much the same price. I don't think the artist is responsible to change his business due to the after market. They are two different worlds.

Speaking of aftermarkets; I wonder how many of these 1,300 prints were people buying multiples. I would guess that there were not more than 700 individual buyers but I don't know...

You are sort of right, I mean I see your point, and I agree, but we all live in the same world. It is all reactionary. Had Red Cosmo not been so popular, in demand, and expensive it is unlikely Juxtapose would commission something so similar from the original artist, and even less likely he would sell 1,300 copies of it.

So Red Cosmo's value *must* have played a significant part in the creation and release of Hypo. It is good of Jem to curb his asking price in line with the rest of his release. $200 is a very fair price, and affordable to anyone remotely serious/interested in such things.


I too am curious how many individuals purchased these prints vs how many were sold. I considered buying two, with one as a birthday gift for a friend, but ultimately decided I don't want us both to have the same piece on the wall so I only got one for myself (hehe sorry Mike).

They'd make great stocking stuffers! Seriously I thought about buying two and giving one to my sister as a Christmas gift but when I thought about it I was pretty sure it'd end up staying in the tube and gathering dust under her bed so I just bought one for myself. Merry Christmas to me! :pint:

If they have started to ship, then have thy started sending out tracking info. My buyer is getting anxious, and he gifted me the $1200. Just wanting to ease his mind a bit.

Do they ship multiples in the same tube? Just wondering as I'm hoping they break my 20 down into groups of only 2 or 3.
