About the edition

Produced in conjunction with the artist’s solo show Jonathan Horowitz: Minimalist Works from the Holocaust Museum at DCA, this print edition relates to Horowitz’s large scale fibreglass sculpture, which featured in the exhibition. Inspired by an Ellsworth Kelly white fibreglass sculpture in The Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, the artist re-presents the original pure white form using an expanse of exuberant pink.

"Horowitz’s translation takes the original out of the closet and turns it into something more triumphant. But of course the pink triangle also marked out homosexuals in Nazi Germany so brings the issue of that minority in that holocaust to the fore."

Graham Domke, Curator

In print form, this work is also a reference to Ellsworth Kelly's much sought after limited editions (produced at Gemini G.E.L) and are created using the same original lithographic technique used by Kelly.
