"Requiem" is a 14 color serigraph. Printing this many colors on the smooth surface of the Sirio Ultra Black paper gave us an opportunity to get an incredible build up of texture on this edition. In the photos below you can see some of the build up but to really experience this print it should be seen and felt in person (with clean fingers of course).
In his most recent work, Los Angeles based Egyptian American artist Joseph Paul Gerges, employs an anthropomorphic association to animals as a symbolic parable for human suffrage, pain, vulnerability, and survival. These frozen moments exile the romantic extolling in its place the poignant realities of life and mortality. By creating an altarpiece to the simultaneous confrontation and seduction of these human experiences, Gerges crafts a visual language for our collective humanness.
