German artists Albert Oehlen and Georg Herold collaborated on an edition of prints following their three-person exhibition at the Renaissance Society in 1989 with Christopher Wool. The image of a woman’s hand lifting a small frame to reveal a print in process was drawn by the artists from the cover of a silk-screening kit which they purchased in a Chicago arts and crafts shop. The collaboration appealed to both artists’ methodologies as an appropriative process. It also incorporated caviar – which Herold was using as a painting material at the time – into the ink.
This untitled print is enamel, ink, caviar on canvas. It was produced in 1989 in an edition of 10, with five artists' proofs. Each measure 13"x10".
