Also on view will be one of four new mixed technique etchings by renowned French sculptor Bernar Venet (b.1941).  These four large prints are from the artist’s Effondrement: Arcs (Collapsed: Arcs) series and are the artist’s latest works in the print medium. This is the first collaboration between Bernar Venet and World House Editions.  The artist is presently showing in Les formes de la pensée/peintre et philosophie, un récitat the Fondation Maeght, Saint-Paul de Vence, France, as well as in In the mirror of reality, La Galleria Venezia, San Marco, Venice, Italy.

Caetano de Almeida (Brazilian, b.1964) is a São Paulo-based painter who is making his first foray into the print medium and will be represented by several new color monotypes typical of the artist’s optically charged and chromatic style of abstraction.  This is the first collaboration between Caetano de Almeida and World House Editions.  The artist presently has a solo show at Eleven Rivington in New York and will be included in 0-60: The Experience of Time in Contemporary Art, opening this fall at Pratt Manhattan Gallery, Pratt Institute, in New York.

The final new project this year is a photo edition by the highly influential Belgian video artist, sculptor and photographer, Marie-Jo Lafontaine (b.1950).  Alice in Wonderland (Roses), a chromogenic C-print, is the artist’s first edition with an American publisher and is also her first time showing in the United States since her 2001 solo show at the Von Lintel Gallery in New York.  This is the first collaboration between Marie-Jo Lafontaine and World House Editions.  The artist is presently exhibiting in The Weak Sex- How Art Pictures the New Male at the Kunstmuseum Bern and in Focal Planes: Contemporary Photography and Video Art from the Collection, at the Kunstmuseum Bremen.

London-based painter Mark Francis (Irish, b.1962) will be represented by a large mixed-technique etching created between July and October of 2011.  Entitled Atlas #1, this recent print represents an exciting stylistic departure for the artist.  Atlas #1 is the fourth collaboration and the thirteenth individual edition published by World House Editions with Mark Francis since 2004.

The final work representing World House Editions at the Print Fair will be by London-based painter Nicky Hoberman (South African, b.1967).   Whoopee Pie III was created by the artist in the fall of 2011 and is part of a series of monotypes from the artist’s Disguise series.  Since 2011 Nicky Hoberman has collaborated twice with World House Editions.  The artist was included in Painting as a radical form at the Collezione Maramotti in Reggio Emilia, Italy, earlier this year.
