Greg Kucera Gallery is pleased to announce new work by Seattle artist Gregory Blackstock, featured in a solo booth at the Outsider Art Fair 2020 in New York. The artist continues his exploration of identifying and labeling the world around him in the form of taxonomic drawings of various subjects. The exhibition will include a variety of imagery, typical of Blackstock's aesthetic, including Lilies, Piranhas, Saws, Wild Cats, German Shepherds, Beets, Pumpkins, Flags and Airplanes.

Aside from a few drawings by Blackstock, this one-person presentation also features three small suites of prints in which we have curated a selection reflecting the range of his oeuvre thus far. The titles of the suites are The Incomplete Historical World, Parts I, II, and III. Images taken from his taxonomies of the natural world (birds, animals, fish, insects and plants) are seen in context with his encyclopedic view of the manmade world (clothing, tools, cars, buildings and his beloved accordions) to create the macrocosm which is Blackstock's world. Each is hand-signed by the artist in numbered editions of 10, 15 or 20. These archival pigment prints range in size from 24 x 12 inches to 36 x 24 inches. Printed on hand-deckled Entrada Rag paper by Stephen Rock of Rock's Studio, Seattle. Several of these prints also contain hand-collaged elements. Published in collaboration with Gregory Blackstock by Greg Kucera Gallery and Dorothy Frisch.

Part II, Printed in numbered editions of 15, each hand-signed by the artist. These archival pigment prints range in size from 30 x 11.75 inches to 30 x 21 inches. Part III, size ranging from 36 x 14.5 inches to 36 x 21 inches. Part III numbered editions of 10.

Printed on hand-torn Entrada Rag paper by Stephen Rock of Rock's Studio, Seattle.

Prices will increase as editions sell.
