‘I'll Cry when I'm done Killing’ is a beautiful giclée limited edition By Magnus Gjoen hand finished with 24k gold leaf.
This stunning work follows Magnus usual theme of making the viewer question their preconceptions of objects and images of beauty. A calm and beautiful, yet disturbing 17th century styled girl is shown crying and in her hand, is it a fan or a knife? Her dress is pure gold and behind her is a striking geometric patter in gold and black, drawing the eye even more to the main figure of the girl.
Magnus Gjoen - former designer for Vivienne Westwood - knows a thing or two about style. Having recently turned his hand to the art of print making, Gjoen creates images that are full of startling beauty as well as a profundity of thought. His art explores the interaction between power and fragility, juxtaposing the two states for maximum conceptual effect.
