Guy Diehl’s Series Modigliani finds the artist exploring the possibilities of unique state editioning. Where Diehl’s compositions typically feature a still life arrangement set against a minimal, monochromatic or gradated backdrop, each unique print in the Series Modigliani features a different eye-catching background design. Many of these backgrounds were drawn from a particular art-historical source – ranging from Art Deco and Art Nouveau patterns to the geometric abstraction of Malevich and the Russian Constructivists – resulting in a unique state series which pays tribute to some of the finest moments in the history of art. -Nick Stone
Series Modigliani was featured in Diehl’s March 2018 solo show at Dolby Chadwick Gallery.
