GARDEN FOR A SWAN by Claire Nereim
This sweet limited edition letterpress print was produced on the occasion of the Knowledges weekend of curated sculptures and performances by artists up at the legendary and beloved Mt Wilson Observatory in the Angeleno Mountains on June 3-4, 2017.
The artist Claire Nereim created an "interpretive map of seven new constellations depicting plants" surrounding "Cygnus the Swan" in a "vernal astral garden". Astronomers who named the constellations did so according to their culture, their mythologies. So, it's a wonderful thing to look up at the sky and imagine plants and gardens through the eyes of this artist. For minimalists, gardeners and dreamer enthusiasts, this print is a wonderful addition.
"GARDEN FOR A SWAN" is a two colored letterpress edition of 100 on acid-free paper. There is also a debossed imprint of the Knowledges commemorative date for the memorable event at the bottom. Signed on verso. Dimensions are 36"H x 30" W
