Richard Prince New Figures, 2014 Suite of 24 collages with photogravure and etching on Lanaquarelle paper in a custom box Each: 14 x 11 inches / 35.56 x 27.94 cm Edition of 26 Two Palms is pleased to premiere Richard Prince’s New Figures, a suite of 24 collages with photogravure and etching during ArtBasel Miami 2014. In his newest portfolio with Two Palms, Richard Prince once again borrows imagery from mass media, in this case 50’s era nudie pictures from pulp magazines intended to stimulate the sexual urges of male readers. In making the collages, Prince literally cuts away the titillating bits, revealing a re-drawing  of the bits in his own hand beneath. Part homage to Picasso and DeKooning, Prince de-fetishizises the female form and disrupts the male gaze.
