Limited Edition Silkscreens by Jorge Pardo
In partnership with Petzel Gallery, Artspace is delighted to offer a new suite of twelve limited-edition silkscreen prints by Jorge Pardo. The multi-colored silkscreens meld images culled from familial and institutional archives with artworks formative to his creative development. By layering up to twenty different images “gesturally,” as he says, Jorge Pardo transmutes personal and cultural memories into dazzlingly hued, stratified abstractions and recognizable fragments.
Jorge Pardo: Silkscreen Prints
Jorge Pardo's silkscreen prints meld a breadth of imagery, culled as much from familial and institutional archives as from artworks formative to his development. By layering up to twenty different images "gesturally," as he says, Pardo transmutes personal and cultural memories into dazzlingly hued near-abstractions.
Pardo, who was processed to the United States as a Cuban refugee, mines his and others' family portraits, which the Cuban regime confiscated and intentionally sent to erroneous addresses years later. These abstracted family portraits interweave imagery of artworks crucial to the artist's development -- from his Iodestars, such as de Kooning, to contemporaries like Laura Owens. Pardo's own works, such as his iconic hanging lamps, figure in the prints as well, reinforcing the idea that the superimposed images, posed as memories, function as a form of self-portraiture.
