'In my house', Seth, 2023
A boy spray-paints the house in which he lives. His creativity becomes the refuge where he pursues his dreams. The strokes of the cans are bulwarks against the darkness. They preserve the inner light of childhood that continues to shine.
Three years after his last lithograph, 'À la fenêtre', Seth offers us 'Dans ma maison', an enhanced aerosol print that resonates with his large-scale fresco painted in 2022 on the wall of a working-class district in the town of Laon.
Only one hundred and fifty copies are produced, and each print is unique. All the houses are different, since they were all spray-painted by the artist. Seth combines the precision of printing with the organic, uncertain aspect of gesture and the raw rendering of the tool. Patience and meticulousness meet vibration and spontaneity. The notion of the multiple becomes unique.
Seth entrusted the production of this lithograph to the legendary Idem printing works in Paris. Founded in 1881, this Parisian mecca of fine art printing is a favorite of major international artists. Pieces produced by the studio can be found in museum collections and private collections around the world.
This lithograph features fifteen colors and was printed on a Marinoni press, on hand-cut 270g white Velin BFK Rives paper. It is enhanced with eight spray colors by the artist. It measures 103 × 70.5 cm.
