Four Loko and Roses

I’m loving this artist at the moment (and yes, I have this image hanging in my bathroom).  Pick up a copy of her book Reveries of a Life Lost Mask HERE and elsewhere. Here’s a little more about the book…

Featured in the 2010 Whitney Biennial, Aurel Schmidt’s intricately detailed drawings include objects such as flies, condoms, and cigarette packs and burns which are pieced together to form larger figures, By using the detritus of life as the building blocks for her subjects, Schmidt’s work becomes a sort of memento mori—a reminder of our own vulnerability and mortality. They are paired here in her first major monograph with the poems of Franz Wright
