Gary Schneider: "john In Sixteen Parts": Limited-edition Print
New York City, NY: Gary Schneider Studios(1996). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 1 pages. Rare Gary Schneider collectible art. A pristine Limited-Edition print of one of the most iconic images from his celebrated sequence, "John In Sixteen Parts", titled, numbered, dated, and signed by Gary Schneider. There is no ISBN. The print is now rare. A brilliant production by Gary Schneider: Regular-sized print format. Measures 8 X 10 inches. In the artist's protective plastic sleeve. Eminently suitable for framing. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Gary Schneider's "John In Sixteen Parts, Part #3". The extreme close-up of the model John Erdman's right eye. From the complete sequence of images that show his various body parts (of his face), lovingly, probingly, and "scientifically" photographed by Gary Schneider (Erdman is the artist/photographer's longtime companion). Both the concept and its realization are brilliant, resulting in imagery that is strikingly original, "Conceptual" photography that is imagined rather than conceived, the work of an artist/photographer who has somehow given us a rare glimpse into the human soul, in all its beauty, pain, and "materiality", through photographs of the human body. The complete sequence was published as the eponymous Artist Book in 1997. An absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item/artwork for Gary Schneider collectors. This Limited-Edition print is one of 20 copies, indicated/numbered as such on recto, and it is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully titled, dated, and signed in pencil by the artist/photographer: "John In Sixteen Parts 1996 Part #3 4/20 Gary Schneider". This title is a great photographic print. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online, is in the artist's protective plastic sleeve, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Gary Schneider prints command thousands of dollars from his galleries, at art fairs, and at auction. His work is slowly but surely destined for canonical recognition. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed print thus. 1 original photographic print. One of the most brilliant artist/photographers of our time. A flawless collectible print.
