Gemini G.E.L.: A Catalogue Raisonné, 1966–2005
As always, Gemini G.E.L. welcomes new techniques and materials as well as the vision and guidance of collaborators both long time and new. Its experiments have increased the technical possibilities within printmaking, testing new processes and cultivating fresh avenues for intaglio, lithography, screenprint, and woodcut both alone and in combination. Myriad new techniques related to unique works and edition sculpture are also explored on a regular basis. Gemini's mastery over such a broad spectrum of media sets a standard for the contemporary print and edition sculpture workshop. The atelier's versatility is also reflected in the broad range of contemporary styles and movements represented in its print and sculpture publications: abstraction, conceptualist investigation, expressionism, new figuration, surrealism, realism, and reductive vision have all found a home at the workshop. After more than three decades, Gemini G.E.L.'s name continues to be synonymous with the creation and dissemination of contemporary art multiples of the highest quality.
