€250,00 EUR

by Marcus Jahmal



Almine Rech Editions is thrilled to present the special edition 'New Religion' by Marcus Jahmal. Each special edition book comes along with the print 'Caballo blanco', limited to 50 signed and numbered copies.

Published in conjunction with the exhibitions by Marcus Jahmal held between 2019 and 2021 at Almine Rech.

For Marcus Jahmal, painting begins with black. Ivory Black, Lamp Black, Intense Carbon Black. These layered shades of oil give his works an intense chromatic texture reminiscent of Ad Reinhart. Coaxing an image from a black-primed canvas is a deeply spiritual, apophatic process, a kind of accumulation through negation, a way of communing with the void. True to form, Jahmal calls painting his “religion.” A self-proclaimed night-owl, he often works in the evening light of his Bushwick studio, drawing his imagery from his walks through the neighborhood after sundown, and asks questions of his paintings that only they can answer. This makes for a monastic but secular practice. “I paint my way out of the darkness,” he says.

- Evan Moffitt, writer and critic
