Faile’s been heads-down working on some fantastic goodies that will be released TOMORROW. At Noon EST (9am PST), the collective will release some original works on paper, a new print entitled “Warriors of the Night” from their “Lost in Glimmering Shadows” series and two astounding bronze sculptures. AM visited the studio to view the goods up close and personal, and like past projects, the craftsmanship is top notch and most certainly will not disappoint. We got all the details after the jump.
The “Scuba Horse” sculpture is based on one of their classic early images and is their second bronze cast sculpture release. The Gun Metal Black patina sculpture stands just over a foot tall, weighs a whopping 25 pounds an elite edition of only 8.
Another unique Bronze Bunny Boy sculpture is also slated for the release. This time with a British Racing Green patina. Just like it’s predecessor from a year ago (Brown patina Bunny Boy), it stands 5″ inches tall and weighs in at 3 pounds. This will be a scarce edition of 10.
All three of Faile’s bronze sculpture releases were cast by the master crafters at Ranieri Sculpture Casting in New York. These guys have a long history of producing some amazing work with a broad list of artists including Robert Longo and Yoko Ono, perhaps most notably known for producing Arturo Di Modica’s “Charging Bull” (aka the Wall Street Bull).
Watch out for FAILE in 2010. They most certainly will be busy. You can expect the remaining prints from the “Lost in Glimmering Shadows” series to be released as well as a fresh set of works for the new year. Upcoming this Spring is a London show with Bast at Lazarides and a group show in Los Angeles with Gagosian.
