David Dodsworth
"Insignia #2" Abstract Mixed Media on Handmade Paper

1988

About the Item

"Insignia #2" Abstract Mixed Media on Handmade Paper Tactile Abstract on handmade paper by David Dodsworth (English, b. 1952) - David’s work is typified by his use of exotic cast papers and the technique of carborundum aquatint – an innovative approach made famous in original intaglio printmaking by Joan Miro, the master surrealist. In this technique, a silicon carbide mixture is built up onto the surface of a copper plate (or sheet of thick Plexiglas). When a sheet of moistened paper is pressed up against the plate, a highly textured relief area is created which can be manipulated further by the applications of various pigments and materials. Dodsworth’s imagery is abstract and simultaneously pleasing, incorporating many visually exotic techniques and characteristics. Image: 43.5"H x 29.25"W Signed, "David Dodsworth," in lower right corner. Edition: 125/200 in lower left corner. Titled, "Insignia #II," bottom center. On verso upper left in pencil "7/22/88 Dodsworth - #2." David Dodsworth gained a Bachelor of Fine Arts before setting up his own studio. Experimenting with imagery and methods of original print and papermaking, he works with thick paints, gold leaves, and metals that he cuts with a jigsaw. He has created a totally individual style that became world renown by 1985. He has won prizes in Japan and Germany and was accepted into the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers in England. Many works by Dodsworth have been commissioned by some of the world’s largest corporations for their company headquarters and his works are represented in many leading galleries throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.

    Alan Shields Alice in Grayland, 1979 Mixed media collage: Etching, aquatint, screen print with stitching and collage on hand made paper Hand signed, dated, titled and numbered 1/13 by Alan Shields on the front Unique variant This very unique and imaginative mixed media paper collage with stitching and fabric is floated and framed in a museum quality white wood frame with UV plexiglass. It is hand signed, dated, titled and numbered from the limited edition of 13 - but each is a unique variant. Frame included: Measurements: Frame: 27.75 x 22.5 x 2 inches Artwork: 23.5 x 18 inches Catalogue Raisonne: K. Tyler Tyler Graphics: Catalogue Raisonné, 1974-1985, New York: Abbeville Press, 1987. p. 289. Alan Shields came of age artistically in the late 1960s in New York. Expanding the boundaries of Minimalism, he became known as a master of aesthetic invention through his wide-ranging exploration of materials and techniques. His mixed media works often contain combinations of traditional silkscreen processes combined with found materials. New York Times critic Roberta Smith wrote in her 2005 obituary for the artist: "Mr. Shields's work combined expanses of gorgeous stained color, reminiscent of Helen Frankenthaler's canvases, with the humbler crafts and a Gypsy sense of portability." Critic Robert Hughes has described Shields as a brilliant bricoleur who could, and often did, make art out of just about anything. He became an innovative printmaker, experimenting with handmade paper and turning out editions in which each print was unique. After his passing, Shields was awarded a Judith Rothschild Foundation grant given to recently deceased abstract artists whose work is of the highest quality but merits further recognition. About Alan Shields: Alan Shields (b. 1944, Herington, KS; d. 2005, Shelter Island, NY) created unique, imaginative, and theatrical structures using unconventional materials and vibrant color. His three-dimensional paintings convey a playful, deconstructive impulse through the incorporation of un-stretched hand-dyed canvas, rope, yarn, beads, and wood. Shields moved to New York City in 1968, where he showed with Paula Cooper...
