Stunned Aside #12

C. Clother“drawings I did for kids in a rehab” zine —out of stock

From March 2010 until March 2011, I was employed by a rehabilitation center for teenagers. During the summer, I began taking requests from the clients for pictures the wanted me to draw. What’s resulted is a collection of images that started in the minds of this specific demographic, and was translated by my aesthetic sensibility into a visual form. The following is, in a sense, like looking into the minds of teenagers in a rehab. — Chris Clother, Spring 2011

These zines were produced in an edition of 60.

C. Clother“Ornament Drawings” zine —out of stock

“These drawings have been nearly a year in the making. Begun last summer while suffering a creative block, they were made with left-handed marks while watching a movie. They started as an effort to work with a creative impulse I generally repress: impulsive, immediate, gestural. To balance them, I looked to an ancient form of mark-making, a method of drawing put to the service of spiritual traditions: ornament.” — C. Clother

These zines were produced in a hand-numbered edition of 50.
