Pinspot Series: The Complete Set!
Pinspot is a series of artists books that explore the printed page as an environment for unfettered creativity. A Pinspot book is an artists notebook, an area free of commercial restraints where artists can explore ideas, a printed multipleanything but a catalogue. The artist may choose to use color images or only black and white, to collaborate with a writer or designer or to work alone, to incorporate text (anything from an artists statement to fiction or poetry) or let the images speak for themselves. The sophisticated, computer-generated cityscapes of Jody Zellen, the soft porn-influenced “apartment wrestling” photographs of Cameron Jamie, the earthy, nature-on-paper concoctions of Rob Cragie, all point to a developing library of exciting variety and innovation, offering the public an inexpensive glimpse into the working minds of some of todays hottest young artists. Recently published pinspots feature the work of Angeleno artist Laurie Steelink, fanciful painter Eric White, Cuban painter Pedro Alvarez, Milagros de la Torre, Saidel Brito, Fernando Bryce, tech artist Alan Rath, the shirt digesting Charles LaBelle, Duchamp investigators Nicholas Lowie & Sheridan Lowrey, X lead singer Exene Cervenka, and photographic ironist David Byrne.
