Expand your print collection with intricate work of renowned artist Wangechi Mutu. In Second born Mutu employs elegant painterly techniques alongside her signature construction of images comprised of skillfully cut-out and collaged forms. Wangechi Mutu’s artistic practice reflects on sexuality, femininity, consumerism, ecology, and politics, of the world. Mutu’s work features recurring mysterious motifs such as masked women and snake-like tendrils. Her collages, paintings, and prints create engaging narratives where symbols transcend their original perceptions. Her work has often been described as a form of myth-making, one in which fact and fiction blend together creating a realm of possibilities for another group of symbolic female characterizations, distinctly different from narratives that appear in either classical history or popular culture.
Mutu received her MFA from Yale University. Her work has been the subject of solo shows at museums and institutions throughout the United States and abroad including: Le Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, Montreal; WIELS, Brussels; Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin; Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco; and the Miami Art Museum, Miami. Her work has also appeared in numerous group shows at institutions including: Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Gotesborgs Kunsthalle, Sweden; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Tate Liverpool, UK; Minneapolis Institute of Art, Minneapolis; and The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York. In 2010 Mutu received the Deutsche Guggenheim Artist of the Year, Berlin.
Second born features media such as 24 kt gold, collograph, relief, digital printing, collage and hand-coloring. The infant in the arms of the female figure is felted. Second born is from an edition of 35 and measures 36 x 43 inches, unframed. The work is signed and editioned by the artist. Wangechi Mutu’s beautifully intricate piece is currently priced at $26,000 but I can extend a discounted price of $23,400. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I am happy to provide detailed images, a shipping quote - anything that may be helpful to you. Have a lovely rest of the day, hope to speak with you soon.
