prints and multiples


17 November – 17 December 2016

Coming from the poetry world originally, I like publication – not just of books, but of stickers, postcards, badges, screenprints, and especially objects. Multiples are mechanically produced small sculptures, often in an unlimited edition. Influences on my work include the Fluxus movement of the 1960s, and concrete poetry.
Some of my work is variations upon existing sign templates, such as changing Wrong Way Go Back to Wrong Day Go Back. This design has been selling as a pressed-aluminium sign of postcard size since 2004, including through MoMA in New York. The result is that Wrong Day is now a ‘meme’ and has been ripped off and reproduced endlessly without any acknowledgement. The same applies to many of my invented signs, including Notice: Thank You. This sign design was first produced for the precinct of the Powerhouse Centre for the Live Arts, along with ten other signs in 2001. Some of these have been damaged, and some stolen.

Prints

Richard Tipping has produced four volumes of The Sydney Morning starting with Volume 1 in 1989.

Volume I is only available as a set with Volumes II, III and IV @ $4,800.00
Volumes II, III and IV are available @ $1,300.00 ea

Volume I, 1967-1988 (Word Works & Ideagraphics)
From artist’s notes: By word works I mean visual/verbal or image/language/sign interactions which play between levels of message, medium and meaning; between text and context; between title and content; combining or manipulating or deleting elements to create a floating springboard to regions more lateral. These screenprints are not ‘copies’ of visual poems or word sculptures existing somewhere else: they are, each, originals.
12 Screenprints – 60 of edition reserved for Volume I – Volume 1 in this exhibition has various edition numbers.

Public collections include: British Museum, London; MoMA, New York and National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.

Now rare – the prints exhibited are last few individual prints from series still available
