Founded in New York City in 1994, Two Palms works with some of the world’s most celebrated contemporary artists to publish prints and sculpture multiples in its studio and showroom in SoHo. Two Palms upends codified notions of what a print could or should be, utilizing a constantly expanding roster of tools and technologies, while nurturing an expertise in traditional techniques such as intaglio and the nearly lost medium of the Woodburytype.

For the Spring 2021 edition of the International Fine Art Print Fair, Two Palms is pleased to present new silkscreens by Stanley Whitney, as well as works from Nona Faustine’s My Country series.

Stanley Whitney has experimented for decades with a single compositional strategy rendering grids with seemingly inexhaustible variations of color. He has described his process as similar to the call and response flow of traditional African-American music, with one color calling forth another and dictating the structure of the work. Drawing inspiration from a wide range of historical and cultural references including Roman architecture, American quilt making, and jazz, Whitney’s latest silkscreens look to the linear, exploring sweeping gestures and staccato lines alike.

In her My Country series, Nona Faustine interrogates iconic American monuments, such as the Lincoln Memorial and the Statue of Liberty, using her camera to re-frame conventional, colonialist perspectives and reinserting some of the truth and trauma behind these memorialized spaces. Inherent to Faustine’s practice is not only paying tribute to the suffering of her own ancestors as an Black American, but also to the status of African Americans in their own country. Until recently, African American contributions to this nation’s history and society have at best been grossly ignored, and at worst stolen and absorbed into white narratives as their own. Faustine’s series looks at America’s monuments and how history is celebrated and, she says, “how history is turned around, what is left out, what is included, what the lies are, and who gets celebrated.” Works from this series are currently on view in the exhibition Fantasy America at the Andy Warhol Museum.
