Street Level Editions Launch - Universal Sympathies
18:30 on 6 June 2019
Street Level Photoworks
Street Level Editions offer the opportunity to collect contemporary photography by emerging and established artists from across Scotland and beyond.
We are delighted to announce the launch of Universal Sympathies, a set of limited edition prints from award-winning Scottish photographer Alan Knox, exclusively for Street Level Editions.
Knox’s photograms were produced by scattering his late Grandfather’s ashes onto photosensitive paper and exposing them to light to create constellations and galaxies of his own making. Due to the nature of their production, each print is unique, and the resulting photographs are completely captivating in their beauty and psychological intensity. A selection of prints from this series is held in the permanent collection of Glasgow School of Art.
For this Street Level Edition, Knox has produced a set of three limited edition silver gelatin prints from the series – Black Hole (Edition of 3), Galaxy (Edition of 2) & Nebula (Edition of 4).
Each print comes is signed and numbered verso, and was hand printed by the artist in the darkroom at Street Level Photoworks.
Join us for the launch on Thursday 6th June at 6.30pm to hear the artist give an introductory talk on the edition followed by a drinks reception.
