Gang Atelier is proud to announce the release of DIP OR SKINNY DIP, a publication with Sydney artist Mitch Cairns. The ninety-four page book collects over forty cartoons made by the artist between 2011–2013, initially produced as preparations for paintings and later becoming an autonomous component in Cairns' practise. The intimate postcard-sized works are drawn from studio ruminations, political events and linguistic meanderings, constructing a type of poetic visual shorthand. In this, DIP OR SKINNY DIP is a meeting place for both arbitrary and deliberate conversations between text, image and page: part pamphlet, part concrete poem, part page-turner.
The flimsy book comes safely contained in a special slipcase, hand-numbered and packaged by the artist, in an edition of 150. View this product
