We’re excited to release Hollywood Nights Print today. It’s been a while since we’ve released a block print and this one has been a lot of work but it’s come together beautifully. This clocks in somewhere around 42 colors of luscious archival ink on a heavyweight archival matte art paper, that captures all the detail of the original block piece it has been inspired by.
FAILE (Pronounced “fail”) is a Brooklyn-based artistic collaboration between Patrick McNeil (born 1975) and Patrick Miller (born 1976). Since its inception in 1999, FAILE has been known for a wide-ranging multimedia practice recognizable for its explorations of duality through a fragmented style of appropriation and collage.
While painting and printmaking remain central to their approach, over the past decade FAILE has adapted its signature mass culture-driven iconography to an array of materials and techniques, from wooden boxes and window pallets to more traditional canvas, prints, sculptures, stencils, installation, and prayer wheels. FAILE’s work is constructed from found visual imagery, and blurs the line between “high” and “low” culture, but recent exhibitions demonstrate an emphasis on audience participation, a critique of consumerism, and the incorporation of religious media, architecture, and site-specific/archival research into their work.
