1,000 Mops by Mark Dahle

This page shows two complete sets of 99 Mops from Mark Dahle's series 1,000 Mops. Each image in the series of 1000 Mops is a unique, one-of-a-kind original. Each is created in an edition of one, with no artist’s proofs or printer’s proofs. Someone investing in an image in this series has the only artwork of the image created and signed by Mark Dahle in the world.

These beautiful mops are created on 13 x 19 inch acid-free 100% cotton rag paper developed to exceed museum standards. The paper has no chemical substances to contribute to premature deterioration and no optical brighteners that fade over time. The images are created with professional-grade, long-lasting pigment-based inks. Canon, the ink manufacturer, says, “your prints will have incredible longevity and phenomenal photo vividness.” Canon's idea of "incredible longevity," however, may not match those of your own. Part of the point of this series is that each of the artworks is unique. When one is lost, it is gone forever.

If you want to find individual mops or sets of ten that are currently available you can find them here: sets of ten Mops and individual Mops.

 

Mops 201 to 209 introduce the theme, like an overture introducing a musical score. Mop 201 previews the background for Mops 210-219. Mop 202 previews 220-229, etc.

Each image in the series of 1000 Mops is a unique, one-of-a-kind original. Each is created in an edition of one, with no artist’s proofs or printer’s proofs. Someone investing in an image in this series has the only artwork of the image created and signed by Mark Dahle in the world. Mops 201-299 shown above are available as a complete set of 99 Mops.

About the series: 1,000 Mops by Mark Dahle

People have a hard time imagining numbers like a million or a billion. But a thousand is a human-scale number. We can picture what a thousand might be like, but it‘s still big enough to be impressive or mystifying. A thousand mops? Really? Why?

Mark Dahle says, “You never can tell where an artist will find beauty. When I visited China a couple years ago, I saw mops everywhere and started taking pictures of them. I thought I might do a series. But I wasn’t in China long enough to take an impressive number of pictures of mops. So I decided to create a thousand artworks based on one mop.”

What size are the 1,000 Mops?

The artworks in this series are 13 x 19 inches. They are shipped for safe keeping in an archival storage box or, if you prefer, in an archival portfolio. The portfolio is a great way to have easy access to more than one image; the storage box is a great way to keep the artwork safe in storage.

How many copies exist?

Each artwork in this series is a one-of-a-kind original. Photographs of the images may appear in books, on the internet, and in other media to help promote the series, but only one print signed by Mark Dahle exists of each image.

What about longevity?

These artworks are created on acid-free 100% cotton rag paper developed to exceed museum standards. The paper has no chemical substances to contribute to premature deterioration and no optical brighteners that fade over time. The images are created with professional-grade, long-lasting pigment-based inks. Canon, the ink manufacturer, says, “your prints will have incredible longevity and phenomenal photo vividness.” Canon's idea of "incredible longevity," however, may not match those of your own. Part of the point of this series is that each of the artworks is unique. When one is lost, it is gone forever.

How much is the artist involved?

Artwork is often discounted by the market after a couple centuries if the artist did not have a direct hand in its creation. (Compare the value of a painting from the “school of Rembrandt” with the value of a painting by Rembrandt himself.) These artworks were created by Mark Dahle from start to finish. He conceived the idea, photographed it, created the artwork, and printed the artwork himself. No apprentices or outside labs were involved.

I like a particular image. Can I get it in another size?

Each image in the series of 1000 Mops is unique and exists only in the 13 x 19 inch size. Mark may create a series of 100 Large Mops at some point in the future (at a size up to 40 x 60 inches), but all of those images will also be originals. This is good news for collectors: when you invest in an image in the series, you have the only artwork of that image signed by Mark Dahle in the world.

This seems different from how artists usually work.

It is. Most artists create multiple copies of their limited editions, which usually dilutes their resale value. But images in the series of 1000 Mops are one-of-a-kind originals. Each image is printed in an edition of one, with no artist’s proofs or printer’s proofs.

I can’t decide which Mop(s) to invest in.

Each of the 1000 Mops come with a Five-Year For-Any-Reason Unconditional Guarantee. You may return the artwork for any reason for a full refund. This gives you the risk-free ability to try one or more images out in your home, office or gallery to make sure they’re just right for you. Take up to a five full years to decide. We'll even cover the return postage through the United States Postal Service so you can order with confidence, risk free.

May I reserve a set of Mops?

On approval, a set of Mops may be reserved for up to one year. If the price of Mops increases during that time, the original price will be honored during the duration of that year.

When you invest in one of these artworks, you own a piece of art history.

There are only 1,000 13 x 19 inch mops total, each unique and collectable. As the series becomes more widely known, you can be proud to have invested in the series. When you invest in one of these artworks, you own a piece of art history.

What are the prices?

Each of the 1,000 mops are one-of-a-kind originals. Each image is created in an edition of one (with no artist’s proofs or printer’s proofs). Someone investing in an image in this series has the only artwork of that image signed by Mark Dahle in the world.

Individual mops in the series are currently $1,977, an amazing value for an original piece of art. A set of ten consecutive mops is $18,770. A set of 99 consecutive mops is $184,700. Prices are subject to increase without notice. To invest in a set of ten, a complete set of 99, or an individual mop, call 858-736-7395. Mops are shipped free of charge to any location in the United States.

Will more Mops be released soon?
