Introducing, "The Third of May" by Emily Joyce

Gray Area Print is very pleased to announce this set of 6 new editions made in collaboration with artist Emily Joyce.

With "The Third of May" by Emily Joyce I am debuting Gray Area Print as a new publishing entity driven toward fine art prints, organizing close collaborations with artists to produce bodies of printed work made into small run limited editions. Gray Area Print will create a platform for the kind of close collaboration and acute eye for aesthetic detail that I have cultivated in my practice over the last several years.

Emily Joyce has the clean style and clear eye of a formalist working in the bright palette of pop with a minor twinge that lends an intimacy to her work. Joyce's effortless geometric forms and graphical abstractions privilege the lush simplicity of the gestural mark offering us the kind of abstraction that threatens to plunge headfirst into our own reality. The simultaneous illegibility and familiarity of her imagery skips across our field of perception to evoke a recognition in the viewer’s consciousness that seems at once completely foreign and a part of everyday common sense. Joyce and Lomeli have collaborated on a fair amount of work over the past few years and it is clear they have achieved an effortless working relationship that continues to impress. “The Third of May, Blue, Yellow, Grey, Green, Mauve, & Red” exhibit a new totemic mysticism that has of course always existed in Joyce and Lomeli’s collaborations, yet here renews itself in each print and every single viewing.
