In the blog below we highlight some of our favourite IMMA Editions, particularly those that have very limited editions remaining.
Alice Maher, Prints (2014)
We are delighted to announce that The IMMA Shop has acquired a limited number of Alice Maher prints to sell this Christmas. The prints were produced in a set of nine, but can be purchased individually (there is a further discount for purchasing the full set).
Created using a mixture of techniques from etching to carborundum, these works are marked by a riot of colour and play with motifs of corporeal and symbolic metamorphosis. These are the first works by the artist seen since her highly successful solo exhibition, Becoming, in IMMA in 2012. See the full set.
The image above is the print entitled Orchard of our mothers (2014) Woodcut, Linocut, photopolymer. Edition of 30. 65 x 50 cm
RRP €1,100. With Members 30% Discount €770 (Members save €330)
Born in Dublin in 1945, Sean Scully is one of the most respected and well-known artists of his generation. He occupies a unique place in the contemporary art scene, and is widely credited with having expanded the possibilities of abstract painting after Minimalism.
Inspired by a visit he made to an exhibition in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna this aquatint by Irish artist Sean Scully is taken from Titan’s robe, part of a long series of Robe works, comprising paintings, watercolours, pastels and prints. This is an exceptional opportunity to own a work by Scully.
RRP €2,950. With Member’s 30% Discount- €2,065 (Members save €886)
This is a very unusual edition which includes both a beautifully bound, limited Edition Monograph and a limited edition print; A to Z, (2011). The print is a co-signed collaboration between one of Ireland’s foremost painters Barrie Cooke and one of our most unusual and exceptional authors Dermot Healy; two great artists that we sadly lost in 2014.
Designed by Tony O’Hanlon of Propeller and published in collaboration with Lilliput Press on the occasion of a survey of Cooke’s work at IMMA in 2011, the book includes texts by Seamus Heaney, Brian Dillon, Karen Sweeney and Dorothy Cross.
The book itself is enclosed by a protective slip. The Silkscreen print is easily removable for framing. Print size 131 x 95 mm

Also present on the book’s cover is the name Boris Kochno, a dancer, friend, collaborator and lover of Diaghilev.
Inspired by poetry, literature, interiors and photographs, this edition was based on a work from Peyton’s solo exhibition at IMMA in 2009. Etching in black ink on magnani pescia paper. Signed and numbered. Size 30.8 x 22.8 cm
RRP €995. With members 30% discount – €696.50. (Members save €298.50)
Etel Adnan – Untitled (#213), 2013 (final few remaining)
Now in her 90s, Adnan is an extraordinary creative voice and force of artistic renown. She moves freely between writing and art, poetry and tapestry and has turned increasingly to visual art in her later years. Her enigmatic and colourful oil paintings showcase her use of rapid, thick stokes representing the landscapes of California and the Mediterranean Sea.
Printed on the occasion of the exhibition Etel Adnan at IMMA in the Summer of 2015 this is a distinctive example of the artists work. Archival pigment print on cotton rag fine art paper. Image: 240 x 300 mm, Paper: 252 x 312 mm
