This new title examines Zhao Zhao’s working practice, emblematic for art’s ability to address conflict—social, political, and aesthetic—in a world undergoing unprecedented upheaval. The artist has consistently positioned his art as a counterweight to systems of control that affect and regulate the lives of individuals in China; while his work’s increasingly global reach testifies to its profound resonance beyond his country’s borders. His deft use of a wide range of materials, combined with a tonal elusiveness that veers between the faintly ludic, the sardonic, and the unambiguously confrontational, justify his position as a crucial agent in contemporary cultural discourse.
Releasing a classic for the season. Like a few years back, we are revisiting an offset FAILE Dog print. Printed on a nice thick paper, this is the classic, gritty iconic FAILE Dog but with a rich red/burgundy ink and a gold foil. It shines nicely and is the same size as the offset black light FAILE Dog from a few years back. This is an unnumbered edition, meaning that we won’t have it always available but doesn’t have a number set to the prints. These are signed and will be stamped from the studio.

In his series “Nudes,” Thomas Ruff digitally manipulated pornographic images he found online, clouding the crude clarity of the originals and creating blurry, mysterious and thought-provoking imagery.
Thomas Ruff (German, b. 1958) lives and works in Dusseldorf. He studied photography from 1977 to 1985 at the Dusseldorf Art Academy, where fellow students included Andreas Gursky, Candida Hofer and Thomas Struth. Ruff is well known for large-scale portraits in profile or straight-on, as well as his provocative nudes. His work has been shown in museum exhibitions, biennial exhibitions and major gallery exhibitions around the world.
