Prints are often treated as the lesser sibling of original art. I can only imagine that in high school the words “copy” were etched into Print’s locker and the gossip around the cafeteria was that Print was a fraud. Like a lot of high bullying there’s a smattering of truth to what’s being said (“Tiina’s a dork”) but reality has been twisted with the goal of making us feel lesser than. In fact, the very reason we’re ostracized also makes us unique. Be it in prolific fan fiction writing or the fact that having numerous duplications of our work allows to communicate our message to a larger group. There’s nothing wrong in being a copy, as long as you have something important to say. We took the long way around but you’ve guessed it: we’re at the Affordable Art Series, Prints Edition. Time to show these facsimiles some love.
