This November STANLEY/BARKER launches a new Portfolio series.
Each operates similarly to a book, playing close attention to sequence, layout and form - but in a shorter form, and lower edition allowing for the finest and most unique materials to be used.
Esther Teichmann’s photographs, films and writings, picture mothers like caves, sisters like seashells, lovers like moons, tears like waterfalls. Entering the octopus darkness of Teichmann’s caverns we find ingestion and emission, mother and daughter, sister and sister, lover and lover, surrealism’s erotic jolt: the irritant that makes the pearl. Seashells with apertures like cameras. The womb as oceanic. Lovers as moons. Holding as withholding. Day as night. Narratives of loss and desire are entangled like the glistening tentacles wrapped around the bodies depicted.
This exquisite portfolio produced in an edition of ten is a unique opportunity to acquire four works by Teichmann, including a cyanotype collage, a unique bronze cast of a sea sponge, and two collotype pints.
The Collotype prints were created by the artist in collaboration with Master Printer, Yamamoto San in Kyoto’s Benrido Collotype Atelier. Here a 19th C photographic printmaking process is reimagined within a contemporary context, allowing us to travel across time and place.
Prices range from £1,200-£1,400 depending on the weight of the selected bronze. After ordering you will be contacted to select a bronze.
