Release: Swoon Edline Edition Variants

November 30th, 2015 Posted by: Paper Monster

* To be released on Thursday, December 3rd at around 12noon EST *

Paper Monster is very excited to announce the release of Swoon's Edline Edition Variant artworks. Artist Caledonia Curry in discussing the works, "Edline is a portrait of a young girl I've known since she was about 9 years old. Edline lives in Cormiers, Haiti, where I've been working since the earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010. In the immediate aftermath of the quake, some friends and I put together a rebuilding initiative, and connected with the Mango grower's in her village. At first we thought we would build one building, maybe two, and just be a part of the immediate rebuilding work -- but it soon became clear that this village was a special place, and that a deeper relationship was forming. In 2013 we started working on some after school programming in the community center for the kids in the village, and that's the genesis of this portrait. Edline, about 12 at the time, participated in a shadow puppet play, with the sun as her character, and the rest of the imagery grew outward from there." Find out more about Swoon's numerous community projects and exhibitions at caledoniacurry.com.

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. All works are hang ready backed with either D-rings or french cleat. This Edition Variant release truly demonstrates Swoon's 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.
