Have you ever bought one of their editions? Trust me, they are shoddy as hell. They have a great selection of artists often producing great images, but the machine production of the editions is extremely low quality, on a par with cheap knock offs from a street market (although admittedly I've only experienced the canvas prints, but can't imagine the paper ones are any better). They must cost pennies to produce. My advice would be to steer well clear. If you want a reproduction art work, get it produced yourself for a 10th of the price. And then there's their customer service, don't even get me started on that!
I read everyone's comments this past week and I was really awaiting the photos from the show. To be completely honest, I have to agree with Afroken, I for some weird reason like this work. I can't really explain it. I would take the red and black one and hang it on my wall.
Any idea in regards to pricing and if the work has sold?
No idea vlcane, I haven't enquired. I'm guessing they'll be around the $3k mark and it wouldn't surprise me if they all sold. From what I'm hearing there's quite a feeding frenzy around this artist at the moment. I sense that people are panic buying, much like what happened with Tauba Auerbach 2 to 3 years ago.
Honestly, it seems like 'Richard Prince bought' is a new tag for art-darlings in NYC. From Smith, to Colen's upside-down skateboard ramp at his stinker Gagosian show, to hush mentions in regard to several LES up-and-comers, etc.
Even if Richard Prince is cool, do you think that he decides what to collect based on what other people think? Who cares? I dont think that Kerouac was sitting around trying to be Henry Miller, nor do I think Miller sat around trying to be Thomas Maan. So if I am going to collect why the hell to I care who purchased what? I dont want to be a perfect copy, I want to be an imperfect original. *steps off soapbox Oh PS. these still suck
