Paddle8

Release Date: Available for bidding on Paddle8’s website until March 12
Release Price: $3,000 USD+

Paddle8 is holding “Editions,” an auction that offers limited works from the most celebrated artists of the last century. Included in the auction is David Shrigley‘s My Rampage is Over, a screenprint that depicts a blue elephant sitting on its haunches, accompanied by the words “I must rest. My rampage is over.” While the image’s simplicity is characteristic of Shrigley’s cartoonish style, the elephant’s fatigued stance references the emotional and physical tolls that anger and frustration have on everyone.

Art book publisher Taschen has compiled 120 iPhone and iPad works by David Hockney in a book entitled David Hockney. My Window. After discovering the iPhone as an artistic medium in 2009 and the iPad in 2010, Hockney drew scenes from the window of his Yorkshire home that showcased a complex interplay of color, light, line and form. From nighttime impressions to lilac morning skies, the works document moments that are beautiful in their present existence yet always fleeting.
