ALEX FACE | LOOK FORWARD
Everybody loves a hand–finished edition of prints. There’s just something so damn magical about knowing an artist took the time to breathe some life and personality into what could have otherwise been a dull, mass-produced stack of paper. Sadly, a lot of “hand-finishing” from some artists these days is little more than a few randomly-scattered paint farts from an aerosol can…over what is still a massed-produced stack of paper.
This is most definitely NOT the case with AlexFace’s “Look Forward”…
Via a shit-ton of paint, brushes, late nights, wrist massages, and breaks for ice cream/herbal enhancements, AlexFace has managed to knock out one of most distinct and variable series we’ve ever produced. To use the term “hand-finished edition” is almost a misnomer here. This is essentially an individually unique series of original watercolors from the artist, with a bit of screen-printing sprinkled on top.
I won’t even bother with the whole “here’s some photos, but they don’t do it justice” bit.
In person, cellulose-to-eye, is really the only way to appreciate these lovelies.
