WALLPAPER PRINTS | canvas-backed on lightweight stretcher 2.4 x 3.3m

REALIDAD Art-BaselThe Wallpaper Series of limited edition large-scale prints are now being mounted on canvas and stretched onto lightweight aluminium frames.

Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin, is first to offer these massive black & white prints mounted using this method, as an alternative to wall pasting.  The choice: the image either directly mounted flat onto your wall – for a continuous image-wall surface in your room, or onto a stretcher for the option to rehang the work in alternative spaces.

Showing at ART BASEL, Switzerland.  18–21 June, 2015.  Contemporary Fine Arts stand.  Print availability / Order enquiries, contact CFA.

THE ART NEWSPAPER | this week’s must see shows

Hoolian OAXACA NUD Julian Simmons 2015Until 7 February 2015: Julian Simmons at Paul Stolper, 31 Museum Street, London WC1A 1LH.

‘Sarah Lucas describes her partner and frequent collaborator Julian Simmons as “a Star-man with a pair of binoculars”, but this show also confirms that he is a highly skilled print-maker and significant artist in his own right.

For while the evident subject of these arresting and exquisitely produced prints is a series of Lucas’s soft, fleshy “Nud” sculptures made for a 2012 exhibition at the Museo Diego Rivera Anahuacalli in Mexico City, they also go way beyond mere depiction to take on an independent existence as autonomous works of art.

Like all good portraits, they animate and bring new insight to their sitters; and so powerful is their physical presence that you can’t help wondering what they all get up to once the gallery is shut up for the night.’   Louisa Buck, THE ART NEWSPAPER: The Buck stopped here—this week’s must see shows.

the HOOLIAN series | press release

Hoolian Paul Stolper 2015

Exhibition: 16 January – 7 February 2015, Paul Stolper, 31 Museum Street, London WC1A 1LH.

15 prints each in an edition of 6, signed and numbered on verso. Sheet size: 112.5 x 76.5 cm. Giclee inkjet, archival full-strength carbon-black pigment on Velin BFK Rives, traditional fine-art printmaking paper, mould-made, uncoated, buffered, no optical brighteners, 100% cotton rag, 280gsm. Photographs and printing by Julian Simmons.

“The thing about Julian is that he sees things in greater detail than anyone else I know.  Good for us that he’s also on a mission to show us how he does see it.  How to see.  For me especially, as we’re working so closely together.  These pictures are from our project in Mexico, TITTIPUSSIDAD.
  The muse of HOOLIAN is Julian.  He’s a Star-man with a pair of binoculars.”  
- Sarah Lucas

Paul Stolper is proud to present the HOOLIAN series of prints by Julian Simmons, each in an edition of 6, together with a large wallpaper piece.  All of the prints are illustrated in TITTIPUSSIDAD, the book designed by Simmons which documents his and Lucas’ seminal trip to Mexico in 2012, and which culminated in her exhibition at the Museo Diego Rivera Anahuacalli.

Beautiful in their own right, Simmons’ prints are also rich ‘portraits’ of Lucas’ sculptures, charting their genesis to the finished work, and as such act as the photographic counterpoint to Lucas’ practice.  Following in the tradition of Robert Mapplethorpe and Patti Smith, the prints inform the sculpture as much as the sculptures inform the prints.

TITTIPUSSIDAD | the Magic of Mexico | AnOther Review

TITTIPUSSIDAD anOther mag“I got to know these people – Diego Riviera, Alejandro Jodorowsky – I got so clear with them by being there, as well as some of the old Gods.  It was a brilliant trip, how do you do that again?  I don’t know. But things as good as that?  Yes please.

It can be fantastic, when the circumstances are very inspiring, which is what Oaxaca in Mexico is.  I didn’t run into any problems, it just sort of went – it had the wind behind it, or a volcano.  We made a book from our experience, a storybook with pictures about the time we spent there.  It’s not like a catalogue or anything – it’s an artwork in itself”, Sarah Lucas.

Sculptures Sarah Lucas 2012, made in Oaxaca 27 March – 12 April 2012, “It’s the bible this fucking book!”, Sarah Lucas. An exhibition at Anahuacalli Museo Diego Rivera 20 April – 8 July 2012, Mexico City, Dir. Hilda Trujillo Soto, in collaboration with José Kuri, kurimanzutto, Mexico City; “This is a historic object”, José Kuri.


‘For Anahuacalli in Mexico City I wanted to make the sculptures in Mexico. Knowing that Nuds will tap into the forces that surround them, the enchantment of the place, and its spirits. I chose Oaxaca for the making process. Or perhaps it chose me.
Even the most ordinary materials are subject to variation country to country. One can either get het up about that or go with the flow. The flow is where the life is, and the surprising things. On the street, in bars, in the marketplace. Tracking down stuff is a good way to get to know a town. The one thing leads to another.
Everything you need is around you somewhere, always. Of course you have to make a start.
Start by not thinking it’s elsewhere’, Sarah Lucas.

“I didn’t run into any problems, it just sort of went – it had the wind behind it, or a volcano.
We made a book from our experience, a storybook with pictures about the time we spent there. It’s not like a catalogue or anything – it is an artwork in itself. Julian, my partner, took all the pictures and he made the book. It’s the story of our time there, the whole story. Is it life-altering? I guess everything is, in a way. It was an exercise in conviction. I got to know these people – Diego Riviera, Alejandro Jodorowsky – I got so clear with them by being there, as well as some of the old Gods. It was a brilliant trip, how do you do that again? I don’t know. But things as good as that? Yes please!”, Sarah Lucas [interview with AnOther Magazine].


‘I am writing to tell you that TITTIPUSSIDAD is from now on, one of my favourite books ever! It is so intimate and delicate in many ways, almost like a film. Very inspiring and moving’, Monica Manzutto, kurimanzutto gallery, Mexico DF.

‘One of the most impressive and memorable books I’ve seen, in a very long time. Very magical indeed, considering it documents less than 1 month of work in so many pages and remains compelling throughout. Congratulations’, managing editor 032c.

‘It’s the good book! A work of art in its own right’, Jonathan Caplan Architects, New York.

“You’re my competition”, Mario Testino, photographer.

‘I am totally blown over by your new book: ‘Tittipussidad’. It is so cohesive, beautifully designed and printed, one of the best Artist Books I have seen in a while. Deeply in awe! Respect!’, Sylvie Liska, Secession, Vienna.

“It’s a weapon!”, Renata Salecl, philosopher, sociologist & legal theorist.

‘This is how art-books should be!’, Brian Henderson, architect of Sizewell B nuclear power station.
