Paper Monster launching new "Thalassa" edition 1/23 at noon January 20 2013
We are pretty excited anticipating the launch of a beautiful new edition of work that has been in the making for over a year now and we wanted to give our friends and family a little heads up that it is finally dropping on the Paper Monster website Wednesday 1/23 at noon EST.
Our friends at Paper Monster have described the works better than we could have ourselves: "Thalassa is a new release of edition variant artworks by Swoon. The stunning original image has been shown as a site specific sculptural piece at the New Orleans Museum of Art in 2011. These EV* edition variants, featuring imagery of mother nature, more specifically mother of the sea, are created using a variety of handmade, found, repurposed, and salvaged materials. They are delicate works and and are extremely intricate, featuring screened and block printed elements, fine paper cut-outs, collage and paper layering, in addition to lots of hand painted finishing. Swoon has created another amazing series which clearly demonstrates her ability to transform a print edition into unique works of art. We are extremely honored to be a part of this release."
