Artists Space is thrilled to announce a new edition by Lyndon Barrois Jr. to coincide with Mirage Collar, his solo show at Artists Space. Highlighting his exhibition title as well as several disparate and recurring elements from the exhibition, Barrois uses an image transfer technique that is featured in some of his paintings to create a special print on copper plate. Themes of sleight of hand and other forms of magic as well as cinematic references converge in a composition that graphically evokes movie posters, Konika Minolta packaging, and playing cards.
Solvent transfer on gessoed copper
10.5 x 7.5 inches
Edition of 10 with 2 APs
Lyndon Barrois Jr. is an artist and writer based in Pittsburgh, PA where he is an Assistant Professor of Art at Carnegie Mellon University. He is half of LAB:D, with artist Addoley Dzegede, with whom he has collaboratively staged two exhibitions, and co-authored a book of essays (Elleboog, at the Jan van Eyck Academie in 2019). Using magazines, advertising, cinema, and vernacular imagery as primary subjects of inquiry, Barrois’ multimedia practice breaks down and re-configures the languages of print, design, and popular culture in order to investigate underlying ideology, ethics, and conceptions of value. Recent solo exhibitions include Others Who Struggle with Nature at Rubber Factory NYC, Vague November at Van Eyck Open 2020, and Zaal 8 at Kasteel Oud Rekem in Belgium, and the two-person exhibition Dreamsickle with Kahlil Robert Irving at 47 Canal. Barrois Jr. received his MFA from Washington University in St. Louis (2013), and his BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore (2006). He has recently completed residencies at Loghaven in Knoxville, the Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht (Netherlands), Fogo Island Arts in Newfoundland, and the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin, Ireland.
