The Flag Club – Flying the flag











Saturday 18 June 2011 was the official Flying of the Flag, witnessed by a select and exclusive audience of the Flag Club members. Although there was not much of blue skies that day it was dry and a firm wind was blowing to fly this bright yellow flag.
Also on the same day the edition of Thomas A Clark was launched, a box with the flag, the enamel plaque, a dvd with a film of the flag flying on this location and a lot of printed matter.

Ian Whittlesea - Editions




Studio Paintings: Index (Addendum) Published on the occasion of Ian Whittlesea: Energy is Eternal Delight at PayneShurvell, London, 17 June-23 July 2011

This limited edition print marks Whittlesea's return to the studio and a continuing engagement with text and typography. The Studio Paintings (1994-2002) describe the places where artists and writers worked. Whittlesea transcribes the addresses and the migrations of, among others, Mark Rothko, Donald Judd, Piet Mondrian, James Joyce and William Blake. The edition Studio Paintings: Index shows in miniature all the paintings produced from 1994 until 2002. After Circumnavigation, a group of text paintings about Darwin's voyage and his garden walk (2003), Whittlesea retreated from painting and, while continuing to exhibit, stopped making new work. The obsessive attention and discipline that sustained the production of the text paintings was for the next few years directed exclusively toward judo – described sometimes as 'physical chess', sometimes as the 'great crippler' of the martial arts. Despite many and various injuries (broken ankle, nose, ribs etc.), Whittlesea gained his black belt in 2007 and began work on the translation and typesetting of Yves Klein's Fondements du Judo (1954), published in 'transimile' in 2009.
Energy is Eternal Delight brings together several recent works dealing with translation, simulation, title, text and typography, among them a new painting, showing the New York address of Agnes Martin's studio, and an Addendum to the Index, applied to the reverse of the 2002 print.
