Kelly Mark | Frankfurter 5

Kelly Mark
Frankfurter 5
Toronto, Canada: Nothing Else Press, 2013
Inkjet on archival paper
30.5” x 31”
Signed & numbered edition of 20

The 11th edition (following Jonathan Monk, David Shrigley, Micah Lexier, Michael Dumontier, Karen Azoulay, etc) from the Nothing Else Press is the first available print edition of the artist’s ongoing series of works made entirely with dry transfer rub-on letters and symbols.  Mark's Letraset drawings began in 2001 and have remained at the centre of her practice, evolving from intimate sized compositions to sprawling works, with one (recently purchased by the National Gallery of Canada), being over thirty-three feet long.

The results are complex renderings of text as image which evoke Concrete poetry, Constructivism, Dada, Futurism, imaginary landscapes and machinery.
