Available now for PRE-ORDER with an expected early December delivery date is a
set of high quality prints on fine art paper of five exceptional
drawings John Balance created in 1994.
These magickally charged artworks are quite unlike anything in John Balance’s known visual oeuvre.
Clearly influenced by Austin Osman Spare’s
automatic drawings and originally considered “lost”, high resolution
scans have recently been rediscovered and are presented here on 250gr
Rives paper, sized 30 x 40 cm in a limited, individually numbered and
blind-stamped edition of 50 copies available in a foil-blocked folder
with an additional variant embossed print of probably the most striking
image “Ectoplasm 4” as originally envisioned by Balance’s late partner,
artist Ian Johnstone, who had planned to do prints of these several years ago before his own untimely passing.
folder includes an extended limitation card featuring some rare and
private photos from the very final period of Balance’s earthly
existence, most of them seen here for the very first time.
