Clotho, Lach, Tropos, and Anvil

New York and Berlin-based artist Chloe Piene completed her first Highpoint Editions project in the spring of 2010. Like her drawings, Piene’s new prints feature gothic figures that are darkly beautiful. Anvil is a line etching of a partial female figure with contours that appear to float above the page. Three more prints, Clotho, Lach and Tropos, are named after Clotho, Lachesis and Atropus, the Fates of Greek mythology. Each was created from a pair of lithographs that were printed on Gampi, a translucent Japanese paper. This technique created delicate variations in tone. Because Gampi is fragile, Clotho, Lach and Tropos will be sold framed.
