    About The Work

    Artspace is proud to announce Sleeper with Signs, a new variable edition of risograph prints with hand-colored drawings by Anthony Cudahy. 

    His new series of 30 unique prints comes with a copy of the artist’s first comprehensive monograph by Monacelli, Spinneret, published as a companion to the artist’s current solo exhibition at the Ogunquit Museum of American Art in Maine.

    Cudahy is a figurative painter whose tender scenes reveal the nuanced complexities of life. In masterful compositions, he creates a world for unspoken stories, intimate moments and romantic gestures with diverse references from news footage and family photographs to Renaissance paintings. Personal and poetic, Cudahy's figures coalesce with the atmosphere of their environments in fluid brushstrokes. 

    “Whilst I collect a lot of images, there’s no hierarchy between them…I keep some images for years, not knowing how I will use them or why they hold such potent and persistent significance. Eventually, they align with an idea or a sensation that I want to construct in a painting.” —Anthony Cudahy

    The subject of a new profile in The New York Times, Cudahy is considered one of the vanguard artists working in his field today. His work has also been featured and reviewed in publications including Artforum, Frieze, BOMB, and Brooklyn Rail. His work is in the collections of the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami; Baltimore Museum of Art, MD; Kunstmuseum, The Hague, the Netherlands; and Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, among others. 

    Proceeds from the sale of Sleeper with Signs will benefit the Ogunquit Museum and Doctors Without Borders.
