Magnus Gjoen - former designer for Vivienne Westwood - knows a thing or two about style. Having 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.
‘Vol 1: Skulls’ brings together two of Gjoen’s most compelling themes: beauty and the macabre. Each print depicts a skull emblazoned with decadent Baroque imagery, from portraiture, to floral design, to intricate, geometric pattern: an incarnation of death that resides in the sublime.
Print titles include:
- ‘Dei Gratia'
- ‘Everything Ends’
- ‘He Lived Like a Devil’
- ‘Roses are Dead (Lenticular)’
- ‘I Thought We Would Only Meet in Death’
A set of truly striking and evocative prints, ‘Vol 1 - Skulls’ is undoubtedly Gjoen’s magnum opus, to date.
