At this year’s fair Stoney Road Press will be showcasing a major new body of work by Richard Gorman made at Stoney Road Press in 2015. KAN is a series of three monumental (150 x 110cm), and six smaller scale (51 x 38cm), carborundum prints on handmade Indian paper in editions of ten.
KAN takes its title from a Japanese concept. The character 間 (pronounced 'kan') is an essential one in everyday Japanese. The fundamental meaning is “space between,” “gap,” “interval,” “distance.” However, it refers not only to space, but to time as well, meaning, also, "time between," "pause," "break."
Richard Gorman first began collaborating with Stoney Road Press in 2003, producing a series of woodblock prints and 3D works. Recently, he has also collaborated with the fashion house Hérmes to produce his designs on their signature silk scarves. A book of his work published by the Joseph & Anni Albers foundation is also forthcoming.
