SID DICKENS fall 2013 is here!
This Fall from Sid Dickens’ studio, two new forms emerge. Those familiar with Dickens’ early work will recognize in Gameboards an homage to some of the first works of art ever created in his original Eastside Vancouver studio c.1990, well before Memory Blocks came to be established and loved by collectors worldwide. Tablets mark a new direction in Sid's work and the introduction of a more distinctly modern style, with a larger scale befitting that of a well-considered portrait painting. A return to his original process of cracking each work individually ensures every piece in this collection will be unique. Please join us in welcoming these new forms to the catalogue of Sid Dickens' work.
the gameboard is AMAZING!
and how cool are these 'framed' tablets?
and here are the Tiles for fall 2013:
we have a great selection, but new tiles go fast! come see them in person!
Dreamscapes of long-departed times unfold with Sid Dickens this fall. Delicate fragments of history sparkle with hints of Medieval magic, inspired by Sid's love of ancient folklore and historical fiction such as Game of Thrones. In this kingdom, emotion and elegance reign.
These new works continue the ever-inquisitive narrative of Sid's unique catalogue, paying tribute to the great myths and mysteries of the ancient world. The rough yet refined quality of his signature iron-like finish walks us through the great halls of history, elaborately gilded by the hands of countless artisans. Images that richly illustrate Sid's enduring affection for nature and a palette of warm sepia and a burst of midnight blue unite these fond effigies to Autumn.
As the laughter of joyful celebrations fades with the sun, candlelight illuminates the imagination with dreams of lost empires and noble kingdoms.
Cheers! the lusso girls
