    About The Work

    Proceeds from this edition benefit the Summer 2018 exhibition at the Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College examining the legacies of legendary art dealers Pat Hearn and Colin de Land.

    Philip Taaffe’s Siamese Leaves does little to hide the way in which the print was created. Spots of dried ink limit the contact of the paper with the matrix producing areas where ink was not picked up, and where one would expect to find negative space, we see generous markings from the print block itself. As much as Siamese Leaves might seem to be about the temporary and tangential joining of two leaves, we’re left to wonder if what we’re really seeing is evidence of the temporary pressured joining of the woodblock and the paper whereby the relief print has been produced.
