R.JAMPOL PROJECT(s) will release an 18 page artist book, titled “Dark Spell” with artist Jennifer Wroblewski this Thursday, July 23rd in conjunction with current exhibition, “Crossing Your Own Line."
Dark Spell is a 6” x 6” Riso printed publication, hand bound with recycled Sari silk. The silk is a built-in critique of drawing, the subject of the book’s imagery and poetics. Color has its own power; neither words, nor mark can bring its energy to bear. Two large scale drawings mask each side of the unfolded publication which spans 18” x 18”. The darker drawing is titled “Silver Stallion Drawing,” and the lighter titled “Light Spell.” “Dark Spell” includes a short poem comprised of reconfigured lines of seminal writing on drawing and poetry by Jacques Derrida, Harold Bloom, and Josef Albers.
A special edition of ten catalogs are hand painted by the artist and available for $200 USD. An additional fifty are available for $50 USD. To purchase, click
