If you previously have had the pleasure of seeing Minnesota artist Gregory Euclide’s work in person, then you will surely attest to what a immersive experience his multi-dimensional mixed media work can be. David B Smith Gallery, who represents his work in Denver, have just published a limited edition giclee print – titled Untitled.
You may be wondering how one of Euclide’s works would translate into an essentially flat medium, but the original image was created with 2-dimensional representation in mind as it features as cover art for the latest, self titled, and very delightful Bon Iver album release. The original piece comprises acrylic, buckthorn root, dirt, found foam, geranium, moss, mylar, paper, pencil, photo transfer, pine cone, sedum, snow and sponge – weighing in at 35 x 35 x 6 in. The print runs in an edition of 500, is signed and numbered by the artist and is an archival giclee on Hahnemühle Photo Rag Paper (308 gm weight) sized at 24 x 24 in. Fifty percent of net proceeds from the edition are to be donated to Agapé Riding Center and the Greater Mankato Area United Way Connecting Kids Program, two non-profit organizations based in South Central Minnesota. You can get a copy for yourself here.
Also, Pitchfork have a pretty interesting background interview with Euclide where he discusses his connection with the band you may be interested in checking out. Gregory Euclide’s next solo exhibition opens at David B Smith Gallery on September 15th.
