    Portfolio of seven aquatints on B.F.K. Rives paper

    21 x 27 inches (53.3 x 68.6 cm) (each)

    Each signed from an edition of 45

    James Turrell’s Deep Sky print portfolio is a collection of seven aquatints that explore the artist’s interest in light and his Quaker faith. The prints are both abstract and evocative of natural landscapes, and they are ultimately tied together by the presence of tiny stars.

    Turrell is known for his immersive light installations, which often use subtle changes in light to create a sense of awe and wonder. In the Deep Sky prints, Turrell translates this experience of light into two dimensions. The prints are made using the aquatint process, which creates a soft, velvety texture. This texture helps to create a sense of depth and atmosphere in the prints.

    The Deep Sky prints are also infused with Turrell’s Quaker faith. Quakers believe in the importance of inner light, and Turrell’s prints can be seen as a reflection of this belief. The tiny stars that appear in each print represent the inner light that exists within all of us.

    The Deep Sky prints are a beautiful and evocative exploration of light and the human spirit. They are a must-see for anyone interested in Turrell’s work or in the intersection of art and spirituality.

    Framed to museum standards. These sets are extremely rare to come across.

    "I'm interested in the light that we see, but also the light that we don't see."

    James Turrell

    Turrell is considered a pioneer of the Light and Space movement. His signature works manipulate light and space to create immersive experiences. Skyspaces, enclosed rooms with openings to the sky, are a prime example. Perhaps his most ambitious project is Roden Crater, an extinct volcano he's transforming into a naked-eye observatory, a testament to his lifelong fascination with light and the cosmos.
