We are very pleased to announce the publication of El Prisma en tus Manos (The Prism in your Hands) a new lithographic book by Dianna Frid.
El Prisma en tus Manos was inspired by Frid’s research and subsequent artist’s book exhibition “Materias / Matter and Subject Matter” at the Biblioteca Francisco de Burgoa in Oaxaca, Mexico. The artist exhibited codex like books in which she simulated the worm holes and aged pages of the volumes in the library. Many of the images are based on illustrations from Ulysse Aldrovandi's books on minerals. El Prisma en tus Manos was included in this exhibition.
"In El Prisma... each mineral is tinted with the colors of the spectra of light. Likewise, the background on which the sequence unfolds is also a field of color underneath reflective silver leaf: the color spectrum seeps through the aluminum leaf which has been spaced in an array of rhythmic cracks that makes each print in the edition unique in its subtle variations". Dianna Frid
El Prisma en tus Manos en tus Manos is a twenty-one color lithograph with aluminum leaf and chine collé on white Rives BFK paper 10½ x 56" printed in an edition of 20, plus proofs. The publication price is $2,500 (subject to change).
