Franklin Summer takes its title from an on-going drawing project which began in 1994. Works from this little-known series were exhibited at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in the solo exhibition Yoko Ono: Between the Sky and My Head 2009 and are included in the accompanying publication Between the Sky and My Head. The works in the series explore the spontaneous pleasure of drawing. With a quiet and poetic sensibility, the simple, direct quality of the works allows the viewer to engage with Ono’s process. Ono wrote of these works:
"The dots accumulated into a mass, and figures emerged from them... It was very much like what one goes through in meditation..."
The print Franklin Summer is a limited edition series of 100 prints which are signed and numbered by the artist and retail at £450.
