20 Ways to Start the Day

a limited edition artist’s multiple
Edition: 10
Release date: 2015
Price: $2500.00 + S&H
 
In Hindu culture, the Lingam is a symbol of fecundity and a meditative vehicle. With a Western, secular eye to formalism however, its simple geometric shape is both a mirror and a void, a reflection of the world and a window into the unknown. It is the perfect creative vehicle to explore the infinite possibilities of a single shape, and has become the genesis of several ongoing projects, of which this is one.

20 Ways to Start the Day is a multiple created in a limited edition of ten. Each edition consists of a 19” x 15” x 2” silk covered box lined with charcoal foam and 100% white cotton felt. In it are three objects: a 10” x 8” x 1” linen portfolio containing 20 archival digital ink-jet prints from scans of original gouache and acrylic paintings on paper by the artist based on the Tantric Lingam; a 4” x 4” archival digital ink-jet print in an acrylic frame of an anonymous circa 17th Century Rajasthani serpent painting; and a Lingam shaped stone, hand cut in marble by sculptor Don Porcaro.

Price: Each edition is $2500.00. A deluxe version containing the 20 original works on paper from which the prints were scanned is available for $10,000.00.
