Fresh Press | Hernan Bas

Fresh Off the Press at Graphicstudio
We have just completed a brand new edition by Miami born artist Hernan Bas entitled “They Can Bring the Curtain Down.” This suite is an edition of 25 published at Graphicstudio, and is now beautifully packaged and available for purchase.

“They Can Bring the Curtain Down”
“They Can Bring the Curtain Down” is a suite of eight (8) direct gravure prints with images in a paper folio. This work stems from an ongoing interest in the origins of performance art, from the early dada movement with it’s cubist costume parties to the influence of the Russian Ballet Russe on a generation of artists. These images in particular are joined by the motif of the curtain, the life of a performer behind the scenes, with all of the anxiety and butterflies associated with the stage. These are lives of the understudies, the background performers rarely in the forefront but essential to the story.
