About Between Runs
This off-the-wall artist's book is comprised of photographs made at the Hing Yip printing plant in Dongguan, China by the highly acclaimed husband and wife team of Eduardo del Valle and Mirta Gomez. Between Runs refers to the "down time" artists are given when they are on press, between approving one printing form and waiting to see the next. During a five-day stay in Dongguan to oversee the production of their previous title, Fried Waters, del Valle and Gomez made good use of their down time to produce an insightful body of work that combines elements of traditional Chinese scroll paintings, theatrical backdrops and modern graffiti; all found objects within the sprawling grounds of the printing plant. The resulting images are raw snippets of time that resonate with a rare and unlikely beauty.
