Artist manifesto; concerning editions. all new works on paper are unique with no editions ever to be released

 
 

Since 2013 all new works produced are unique with no editions ever to be released.

Provoked by the notion that a painting is intrinsically more valuable than a photograph primarily because of its singular uniqueness.

I intend to counter this perception by producing single edition or unique prints exclusively from this point forward; in an attempt to challenge the ideas concerning the spiritual and economic valuation of artworks and to create an exciting tension between their individual present and relinquished, reproducible past.
