about this work

This new edition is a part of E.H.D., a larger series in Grunewald's practice which stands for "External Hard Drive". This series refers to a physical, versatile archive that the artists is constructing, and that forms the basis for developing new work. The source material in this archive is constantly transformed - by enlargements, contract adjustments and other disruptions - through an old Xerox machine, resulting in large scale abstract works.

Within this series, E.H.D Handling is a new sub-series that focuses on close-ups of hands within the process of creation. The found imagery comes from industrial manuals and hobby books, and could be read as a visual reference to the production of Grunewald's large scale abstract works.

(Please note that each edition is unique, and that the edition you purchase can differ slightly from the one pictured above)

about Manor Grunewald

Manor Grunewald creates large-format works on canvas and sculptures, which closely correspond with each other, addressing the artist’s experimental search for image content. In his recent works, Grunewald is concerned with the optics, visual conformity, imperfection and arbitrariness of the phenomenon of the black-and-white copy. On the canvases are superficially dark colour gradients, which, like the colours produced by a black-and-white photocopy machine, oscillate between shades of black, grey, violet and dark blue. The artist also transfers the “blackening”, distortion and layering of the photocopy process, which leads to colour stains, reflections, white edges and blurred objects, such as fragments of cartoon characters.

Manor Grunewald is a recent ISPC, New York resident. His work has been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including Superdakota, Brussels; WIELS, Brussel; Fifi Projects, Mexico; Duve gallery, Berlin; Johannes Vogt gallery, New York; Jeanroch Dard, Brussels; and Kulturbunker, Frankfurt Am Main. He was also nominated for the Young Artist Prize at BOZAR, Brussels in 2011.
