These two new lithographs from Katherine Bernhardt’s latest body of work, created in collaboration with Counter Editions, Margate, are inspired by the artist’s most recent cultural obsessions and her young son’s current fixations.

 

Rendered in Bernhardt’s signature exuberant style, this large-scale lithograph, which resembles a supersized Pokémon card, features a fierce-looking Pikachu, vibrant colors, and recognizable symbols from the world of Pokémon.

Depicting a giant Ditto Pokémon card with neon pink accents, this work reflects Bernhardt’s instinctive approach to printmaking, in which she often embraces mis-registrations, ink splashes, and other incidental by-products of the printing process.

Pettibon’s drawings and prints engage the visual rhetorics of pop and commercial culture while incorporating language from mass media and classic texts. His new lithograph features a stern-looking, neon-hued parrot who screeches an impassioned expletive.

A seven-color lithograph on Rives BFK paper by Raymond Pettibon, called No Title (Hotwire My Heart), dated 2022.

Raymond Pettibon’s seven-color lithograph features one of the artist’s most significant motifs: the heart. Heart imagery holds particular personal and metaphorical resonance for Pettibon and as a result, features rarely in his work. The isolated bleeding heart first appeared in an ink drawing for one of his early black-and-white flyers in 1982.

Raymond Pettibon, No Title (He doesn't really...), 2022 (detail)

“It can be almost like a valentine. The heart is a metaphor for all kinds of things, like the difference between the brain and the heart, love and that sort of thing. It can also be a musical beat. Sometimes if there’s a fucking microphone, for an interview or a photo shoot or whatever, and it gets very quiet, the device picks up the beat of my heart.”

—Raymond Pettibon

Rauch’s symbol-laden narratives play out in his works on paper much as they do in his paintings on canvas. Lithography has been an integral part of Rauch’s practice since 1993, and in 2012 the artist established a foundation in Aschersleben, Germany, Grafikstiftung Neo Rauch, to house his entire oeuvre of graphic work.

Neo Rauch, Die große Bühne, 2022 (detail). This work features a signpost motif, which Rauch began incorporating into his works in the early 2020s. With arrows and directional markers pointing in myriad directions, the signpost perhaps alludes to the disorientation of contemporary life.

“Rauch’s graphic art is part of [his] complete oeuvre.… like his drawings, his prints are hardly preliminary sketches or imitations of his paintings. Certainly his graphic art does not arise independently from his paintings, but neither is it created in a dependence that lags behind them.”

“The painter at the easel is a frequently recurring motif that very directly reflects my sensitivities. He sees himself as the projection screen of his inner states, and is thereby propelled by his qualms and by his creative desire in equal measure.”

—Neo Rauch

Expanding on a motif the artist realized in large-format drawings for his 2021 solo exhibition at David Zwirner, New York, Dzama’s lithograph is a foreboding allegory of ecological disaster.

 

Dzama’s print shows the personification of Mother Nature at the bottom of the sea with a naval sea battle visible above the surface. The artist’s depiction of Mother Nature is modeled after the nudes in the erotic French magazines that Francis Picabia used for his “kitsch” series of paintings from the 1930s and 1940s.
