Arnold, Steven - Reliquaries VERY RARE!!
Steven Arnold populates his elaborate tableaux with the objects and individuals of mankind’s collective cultural memory: figures from a Caravaggio painting; a dancer seen in a Cecil Beaton photograph; plastic swans from a Woolworth’s Five and Dime Store. Through the artist’s haunted eyes these images and artifacts are seen new again, with humor, melancholy, wit, sadness and above all, great artistry. Produced in an edition of 2,000 copies with an introduction by Ellen Burstyn. Item #3868
