For those of us with original artwork taste but poster budgets, here’s an idea: fragments of larger works, printed, numbered and signed by the artist, costing $63 each plus $9 shipping, from a gallery in Ireland.
The fragments, like the one shown above right, are typically 8 by 10 inches or 9 by 11 inches, and are printed on archival paper. (The larger piece, on the left, is 11 by 19 inches and costs $900.)
The creator of these particular pieces, Susan Kaprov, lives in New York City. Her works are in the permanent collections of such museums as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum Boijmans-van Beuningen in Rotterdam, the Yale University Art Gallery and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, among others.
Kaprov and other artists have taken part in this unique initiative by the Haydn Shaughnessy Gallery in Cork.
According to Shaughnessy, "It’s a great way to start a collection, to remodel or redecorate the home or to give to younger people to help them start a collection and enrich their appreciation of art."
And, Shaughnessy adds: "We are adding work all the time, two or three pieces a week."
