A TREE IS BEST MEASURED WHEN IT IS DOWN
BOXED PRINT EDITION
Gallant appropriates images and motifs that connect to man’s inhumanity and its influence on visual culture. Research for a museum project in Manchester has led him to focus on the parallels in the construction of Britain and Germany’s national identities; forged through the culture of Romanticism, folk art and mythology. The drawings depict the historical appropriation of this strong iconography to carry through the Third Reich’s ideology: The portraits of fifteen key members of the ruling party disappear into fifteen Teutonic landscapes.
Following the drawing show at Darbyshire Framemakers I am pleased to announce the release of a print edition to accompany the drawings and reveal the original colour digital collages. Each giclee print is in a titled hand-cut folder set in a cloth bound half-clamshell box made uniquely for this project. It is an edition of 15 with 3 APs, further information available on request.
The entire series are - Archival Giclee on Hahnemuhle Photo-Rag paper, 30.5cm x 24cm.
