Release: Swoon Dawn and Gemma Edition Variants

September 12th, 2014 Posted by: Paper Monster

* To be released on Thursday, September 18th at around 12noon EST *

Paper Monster is very excited to announce the release of Swoon's Dawn and Gemma Edition Variant artworks. Dawn and Gemma is an intimate portrait of a mother with her newborn child. This image was prominently featured in Swoon's most recent solo show Submerged Motherlands at the Brooklyn Museum. Read more about her exhibition and practice in this great piece by the NY Times here.

These EV* (edition variants) are created using a variety of found, repurposed, and salvaged materials. They are delicate works 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. This is the fourth Edition Variant release we have worked on with Swoon and it truly demonstrates her ability to transform a print edition into unique works of art. Please scroll down for detailed photos of the works and process. 

 

*Swoon editions her work with the addition of “EV” denoting “Edition Variant”. This is used to signify that each piece within the edition, while being the same imagery and format, is not identical as with a typical edition. The edition varies from piece to piece with elements such as hand painting, collage, and material, thus each work is completely unique, while existing within the edition. A piece signed 2/10 EV signifies that while the work is unique, only 10 of it’s kind will ever be created.
