New Monoprints by Brian Edmonds

From the artist's statement:

I chose the monoprinting process because of its close ties to the act of painting.  I used traditional Charbonnel inks along with acrylic based paints to achieve the rich blacks and vibrant colors found in my paintings. Layer after layer of color and line were printed, in some instance as many as 12 times, to give the prints a painterly quality.  The prints range in size from 20 x 28 in. to 14 x 11 in.


You may view a selection of the prints @ DUSK editions in Greenpoint by appointment or by going to and

Jered Sprecher @ TOPS

Here and There, 2013, oil on canvas, 40x44 in.

From the press release:

Tops Gallery is pleased to present Here & There, an exhibition of six paintings by Jered Sprecher.

The works in this exhibition have been selected for their relation to the space of the gallery. The paintings find echoes in the manhole cover skylight, concrete walls, columns, recessed spaces, and sledgehammer crafted doorway. The show is a call and response between the paintings and the space and the temporal nature of both.

Sprecher starts with source material derived from his regular collecting of ubiquitous images and visual leavings. From the fast paced exchange of images and forms that flood the global culture, Sprecher extracts images that confoundingly resonate with vital meaning. In his paintings these images are slowed down, recontextualized, and transfigured.

The selection of paintings for this exhibition span the past fours years. Circles, holes, graphic darks, saturated color, rough hewn form, and refined edges mingle in paintings that are both solid and slipping through the viewer's grasp at the same moment. Both here and there.

Jered will also be giving a talk on Thursday October 9th at 7pm on the campus of the University of Memphis in the Arts and Communication building, room 310.
