From the collection of masterprinter Norman Lassiter, Wright presents an exhibition dedicated to the works Lassiter created with Richard Anuszkiewicz. Anuszkiewicz & Lassiter: The Process of Creation explores the artist / printer relationship with a selection of original works displayed alongside experimental pieces, color studies and completed prints. The collaborative nature of print as a medium unfolds in this unique exhibition where brilliant imagery pairs with technical prowess.
Opening March 1st, Anuszkiewicz & Lassiter: The Process of Creation will be on view in our New York gallery through March 31st.
“I’m interested in making something romantic out of a very, very mechanistic geometry. Geometry and color represent to me an idealized, classical place that’s very clear and very pure."
In 1963 Richard Anuszkiewicz was invited to create the holiday card for the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The small edition was a success and he was made cards for the MoMA again in 1964, 1965 and 1966. After the museum cards, Anuszkiewicz continued producing editions, working with his longtime print partner Norman Lassiter, each year until about 2006. The works typically related to what Anuszkiewicz was doing in his studio at that time. Never available commercially and produced in an edition of 150 or so, the Annual Editions were sent to friends, family and business associates.
