Blazing Editions had a wonderful opportunity to work with David Maisel and produce aluminum prints for his upcoming exhibition “Proving Ground” at the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art at The Utah State University. Maisel’s current work was a long process since these images came from a classified military site called Dugway Proving Ground, which was established in World War II. This massive isolated area is 800,00 acres (more than 1200 miles). Testing positive for chemicals and biological weapons. the images depict the ruins of craters that created geometric shapes.

About David Maisel:
David Maisel (b. 1961, New York) is an artist working in photography and video, and the recipient of a 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship in the Creative Arts. Among his chief concerns are the politics and aesthetics of radically human-altered environments, and how we perceive our place in time via investigations of cultural artifacts from both past and present. His work focuses on power and the production of space by examining landscapes and objects that are off-limits, quarantined, or hidden from view.
Maisel received his BA from Princeton University, and his MFA from California College of the Arts, in addition to study at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. He resides in San Francisco, CA. He is represented by Edwin Hour Gallery, NY; Haines Gallery, San Francisco; Ellen Miller Gallery, Boston; and Ivorypress Gallery, Madrid.

Blazing Editions was thrilled to aid in producing Sangbin IM’s newest works for his current exhibition in NYC, "AI/IM." The Ryan Lee gallery was reshaped with his custom cut high-gloss metal prints. IM’s new series of photographs combines hundreds of images that he has taken on his travels of well-known cities and landmarks. After taking numerous photographs at different angles, he uploads the images to Photoshop and auto-splices them together. The multiple images of a location are then joined together, resulting in contemporary custom-shaped landscapes.
