This page shows a complete set of 99 Mops from Mark Dahle's series of 1,000 Mops.
Each of the mops is identical across the series of 1,000 Mops, but each background is unique. Some backgrounds share common elements, colors, or themes with other backgrounds, others do not.
The net result is that each image in the series 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. Although each image is unique, each is also easily recognized as belonging to this project.
The artworks invite many conversations, including discussions about what makes things related and what makes them different.
Mops 601 to 609 introduce the theme for the 99 mops in the 600 series. Mop 601 previews the background for Mops 610-619. Mop 602 previews 620-629, etc.
