Aaron Curry and Thomas Houseago
Two Face, 2009
Linoleum print on Rives BFK paper
35 x 25 inches
Limited edition of 50 (edition numbers 26-50)
Limited-edition Two Face linoleum print, created during Aaron Curry and Thomas Houseago’s joint-residency at Ballroom Marfa in April and May 2009. The artists worked closely with Tamarind Master Printer Robert Arber, of Arber & Son Editions in Marfa, to produce a suite of ten linoleum prints. Two Face is the first in this series.
The print embodies Curry's and Houseago's Janus-faced approach to art making: simultaneously looking to the future and the past. Their work plays up a fusion between the relics of our cultural past and the aesthetic sensibilities of the now.
