Taiwanese-American visual artist James Jean has returned with another print edition of his high-gloss surrealist work Bibliophile.
"Reading by candlelight, the Bibliophile is lost in the stacks, where each leaf reveals a pulpy expanse of possibility. Flames lick the frayed edges of his tunic and bookends come to life. With each chapter conquered, the stacks grow into walls, and the walls grow into a labyrinth from which there is no escape. In our most complex print yet, the edges of each book's pages are gilded with precision in multiple types of foil, requiring 21 passes through the press to complete the entire composition." Carefully sculpted details can be found throughout.
Please allow for additional shipping time due to the careful packaging these prints require.

Plants and Flowers Show - Amy Matsushita-Beal - "To Lie with Lent Lily" (B)
Risograph print. Piece is unframed.
Artwork measures 8 x 10 inches.
Note from the artist: Lent Lily is another term for wild daffodils. The latin name is Narcissus, possibly based on the Greek God of the same name who became enraptured in his own reflection- I did play with that idea with the two figures almost-mirroring poses, but the ultimate idea is more about two separate people being entranced by each other in a field of daffodils that seem to blend together to the background when compared to how they look at each other.
This piece is part of the group exhibition Plants and Flowers: Our 4th Annual Green-Life Themed Art Exhibition at Giant Robot Store running from September 18th, 2021 - October 15th, 2021.
In-Person Viewing is now available at Giant Robot Store, Wednesdays - Sundays 12:00 pm - 6:00pm.
