Stamp Drawing

Eden Lazaness, Ceci Nest Pas Une Pipe Eden Lazaness, Ceci Nest Pas Une Pipe

The Drawings were made with rubber stamp technique on paper. The image that the stamp duplicates is a date, a text or a number.

By duplicating numerous times the image that the stamp contains - the pictorial image is created on the paper, in this manner the stamp itself uses as a brush.
The stamp's duplicated image uses as a "pixel".

Borrowing the use of the stamp from its everyday functionality to art emphasizes different themes, such as: Bureaucracy, Uniformity & un-individuality, The little man - a small part of the system, Border inspection / passports, Tag that attributes objects or people to a certain group, Cyclicality - a sound that repeats like an oiled machine, Nostalgia - in a time when computers prevail.

The image that the stamp contains, and the pictorial image - between them there are varied connections of opposition/compatibility. The work of art itself is actually this connection between the two.

in addition to the stamp's duplicating technique, the drawings are made in standard formats; Sheet, half sheet, quarter sheet.
These are set formats that are produced in masses; therefore most contemporary artists use these formats - predefined.

The drawings can raise a paradox between the unique work of art, which we can notice from a distance from the work, to the repeating discourse on duplication and the lack of individuality, which we can notice from a close look of the work.
