Brand New BALTIC Editions from Turner Prize Winner Martin Boyce
The collection, Always Fall is a limited edition, woodcut print of 40, with 10 of each printed in four different colours – black, red, green and blue.
Martin Boyce won the prestigious Turner Prize at BALTIC in 2011, the first year the award was held outside of a Tate gallery, for his installation Do Words Have Voices.
Boyce creates sculptural installations that recall and reference familiar objects and public spaces to form immersive and fragmented landscapes. Using the iconography of modern design and its making process, his work will often take shape as a stylised hybrid of furniture, lighting and architecture. His environments offer a sense of wandering through a long-abandoned garden, or evoke the feeling of crossing through an urban park at night. Viewing these works is like experiencing a suspended narrative; the evidence of our eyes takes in the weathered surfaces and worked metal form, but gives us no suggestion of which temporal register to place them in.
BALTIC Editions launched in 2012 to mark BALTIC’s tenth birthday. All editions in the series have been donated by artists who have previously exhibited at BALTIC, including works by the likes of Yoko Ono and Elizabeth Price, with monies raised from the sale of BALTIC Editions helping to support BALTIC’s learning and exhibition programmes.
The prints are available to buy as a set of 4 at a special launch price of £1500 or individually at £450 each. Each print is signed and numbered by the artist and available exclusively at BALTIC SHOP, in-store and online.
Always Fall can be purchased, alongside previous BALTIC Editions, through the Own Art Scheme in-store at BALTIC SHOP, offering an easy and affordable way to spread the cost of purchase over 10 months with an interest free loan.
