BLECHMEKI

This limited edition photographic artwork has archival pigment print on paper. Signed and numbered by the artists on the back. Black metal frame with non-reflective Museum Glass. Hanging hardware installed and ready to hang. The artist duo BLECHMEKI (a portmanteau of their names, Blechman and Umeki) uses mass-produced American pottery from the 1930s to 1980s to create photographic tableaux of stunning simplicity and beauty. At first glance, individual pieces of pottery – such as vases or figurines – appear identical, but closer inspection reveals subtle and captivating variations in form and color. By applying geometric composition protocols to photograph these objects, BLECHMEKI’s work compels the viewer to consider them in ways that transcend their commonplace origins.
