Matthew Marks is pleased to announce Jasper Johns: Recent Prints, the inaugural exhibition in his new gallery at 7818 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles. The 5,000 square foot building will be the second location of Matthew Marks Gallery in Los Angeles.
The exhibition includes sixteen prints made over the past twelve years. Johns has long been acknowledged as one of the great printmakers of the 20th century. This exhibition shows him working at the height of his powers in a wide variety of printmaking techniques including etchings, lithographs, and linoleum cuts. The subject matter in Johns’s recent prints is suffused with autobiographical references and allusions to other artists, often combined with well-known motifs from early in his career, such as flags, maps, and numerals.
Jasper Johns: Numbers, 0-9, and 5 Postcards, an exhibition of new paintings and sculpture will be on view concurrently.
Jasper Johns: Recent Prints will be on view from November 2 through January 5, 2013, Tuesday through Saturday, from 10:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. at 7818 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles. The gallery entrance and parking are accessible via the alley just south of Santa Monica Boulevard, between North Orange Grove and Ogden Drive.
