New Limited Edition by Samara Scott with the New Museum
Artspace and the New Museum are proud to co-launch a new limited edition print by contemporary artist Samara Scott, whose work was prominently featured in the 2021 New Museum Triennial, Soft Water Hard Stone.
About the Edition
Gargoyle (2021) relates to Scott’s large-scale, site-specific, mixed-media installation on the New Museum’s façade, also entitled Gargoyle (Lonely Planet) (2021), in which the artist repurposes and recombines diverse materials to transform them into vibrant, viscous abstractions.
Juxtaposing and intermixing the everyday substances that surround us, Scott layers and collages liquids like fabric conditioner, energy drinks, and hair gel with items such as coins, cigarette butts, and broken jewelry. For her installation at the New Museum, Scott composed her signature array of flotsam and jetsam against the Museum’s tall glass windows, the shifting sunlight and the building’s interior lights becoming the work’s collaborators. The limited edition print Gargoyle takes Scott’s alchemical explorations to the glass surface of the flatbed scanner to create a high-definition photographic image.
