Jeffery Beardsall


Jeffery Beardsall

Found two Jeffery Beardsall pieces in a new junk shop... they are NICE. Folded paper, with some kind of paint and/or pastel, in plexiglass cases, signed and dated 1979. Click on any of these pictures to see them much closer, it's worth it.


This is how I found them, but not exactly, because when I found them they were upside-down... plus, the guy has taped that white index card with the artist's name to it. I should have kept my mouth shut, maybe.


The plexi cases are original, but cracked and broken in spots. I really like these. Keep thinking of Jo Baer.

Makes me think of those Wolfgang Tillmans pieces... you know, those pieces.

Martin said...

michael - no, i completely don't know what pieces you are referencing. i don't associate these with tillmans in any sense. can you provide a link?

these are paper, the facets are mostly from folds, or maybe the paper was pressed that way. these are not two-dimensional pieces.

Not that I could afford this stuff but I am curious. What junk shop is this and where is it located?

Martin said...

eric - it's in greenwich ny, washington county... a town between sarataoga and cambridge.

what is your e-mail? can you e-mail me your e-mail address?

Hi Martin. Glad you love them. No idea how they found their way into a junk shop but these early unpainted monotypes are getting scarce, even the artist has only a few left. It seems you found two beauties, take good care of them. Would love to hear from you. You can get hold of me via the Beardsall website. petra.
