Circle-9 is proud to announce the release of six new Stephen Kasner limited edition prints.
Skyscapes, a series of selected photographs taken in 2006, are surreal and ethereal views 'upward'. Images from this series comprised the end papers of the WORKS book, and are rare examples of Kasner's dreamy photography. Each print is limited to only 3 copies, signed and numbered by the artist, 36 x 24".
Aluminums, a selection of three mixed media drawings created between 1994 to 2006. These exquisite limited editions are printed on .016 gauge brushed aluminum and beautifully enhance the metallic nature of Kasner's work. Each print is limited to editions of 10, signed and numbered by the artist. The aluminum prints also come framed in heavy black frames with silver accents, complimenting each print beautifully. Each piece is 11 x 8.5", 18 x 15.5" framed.

Utech Records/Stephen Kasner collaboration press release.
Utech Records and Stephen Kasner Collaborate on Fine Art Series: Utech Records will invoke a connate soul next year in visual artist Stephen Kasner to develop a second fine art series of cd releases for the label. The series, as yet unnamed, will comprise nine volumes of 750 copies each over the course of 2008 beginning in April. Kasner has committed the bulk of his next year's output to painting original and exclusive canvases. His subject matter has yet to be disclosed, but the artist has spoken in general terms of a new direction he wants to explore in his work. A package unique to the series has been designed to highlight Kasner's residuum and the accompanying music.
The foundation of the series is the belief that a visual device can bind a disparate body of music in a meaningful way. The genesis of this idea was first explored with photographer Max Aguilera-Hellweg in 2007 and the result was Utech Record's acclaimed Arc Series. Fruit borne from that venture has led to this stab at further examination. Kasner immediately saw value in the theory and agreed to help cultivate and refine it.
Artistic study aside, the guts of this series is the music and the conviction that it alone will give rise to its life. Utech and Kasner discussed at length the curatorial undertaking and a virulent battery of musicians was selected. At this time the list includes:
The Vulture Club
Sure to be an archetype for the music/art proposition in the coming year, the series has been intentionally left open ended. The two have agreed to let ideas evolve naturally and it will remain to be seen just how far things will go. There is a lot on the table and not all of it is being revealed at this point. More information will be available at utechrecords.com
