About the Edition
Like Warren's wall-based vitrines, '1990' is made from an assemblage of objects and detritus collected in and around the studio. Partly having the impression that these materials have come to rest here of their own random accord, yet too strangely composed to be mere accident, we are left to consider what possible thermatological act is at work here. Each '1990' consists of the same, repeated lithographic print, pasted to the MDF board, to which the same objects are then glued, with some barely perceptible variations in the twig, the wood shaving, the wool and the string.
About the Artist
Rebecca Warren's sculptures develop long-standing lines of sculptural enquiry into the history of art. It's an enquiry that can be traced back to its prehistoric magical inception, through ideals of representation of the human, to modern and postmodern reduction. In this process, inevitably, it takes in the work of canonical male artists such as Boccioni, Degas, Renoir, De Kooning, as well as cartoonist Robert Crumb. Warren's position regarding her antecedents is very much a fluid one, moving from homage to caricature, from celebration to willful dissolution.
