John Knuth [pronounced Kah-Nooth] is extreme. He kayaks in Echo Park Lake, breeds flies in his garage to make his “fly paintings”, and finds abandoned buildings in the desert that he lights on fire to make his art. And now he has a limited-edition screen print produced by Intellectual Property Prints named “Faded State” for sale. This 5 colour screen print is based on John’s experiments making paintings using emergency flares. Yes, the same brilliant tools that police officers and fire fighters use to alert you of oncoming danger. So be careful with this screen print… It’s hot!
Through the wizardry of our unique processes at Intellectual Property Prints, we were able to reproduce one of John’s experiments with emergency flares and fire into a screen print for you to collect and treasure. It’s a 5-colour, hand pulled, screen print on archival paper with a hand-torn deckled edge – measuring 14″ x 21″ – and in a crisp edition of only 28 units. Each print is signed and numbered by the artist and includes a certificate of authenticity.
