Christina Kruse's exhibition at Steven Kasher Gallery
Dot Editions has produced over thirty prints for Christina Kruse’s first solo show in the United States, Reisebuch 1-5, now on view at the Steven Kasher Gallery. Most of Christina’s work shows the hand of the artist, for example collages with hand stamped numbers, tape, old polaroids, and other ephemera, so she wanted her archival pigment prints to have a similar feel. Part of the printing process involved using a technique to slightly distress the prints, giving them the traditional fiber print look and feel that Christina was looking for.
We also printed Christina's performance piece, the "No" series, on canvas, which was later stretched onto frames.
Printing the show also gave us a chance to get to know our neighbors in the building next door at Squid Frames.
They made over fifty frames for Christina, including one beautiful window frame for a nine-piece grid. They matched certain frames to specific images, and almost all the frames were unique size and color. We were happy to have the opportunity to work with Arlan Huang and Peter Chen of Squid Frames.

The show is on view now through March 28th at Steven Kasher Gallery, at 521 W. 23rd St, with an opening reception on March 5th.
