Of Mud and Lotus (signed)

by Viviane Sassen


Photographs: Viviane Sassen

Publisher: Artbeat Publishers

108 pages

Year: 2017

ISBN: 9784902080636

Comments: Hardcover, 28.7 x 23.2 cm, first edition of 1000 copies, author: Viviane Sassen, Shigeo Goto, Sawako Fukai, graphic design: Yoshihisa Tanaka

sold out

This new work is focusing on artist’s attention for female power and with collages and unique handcoloured pieces, Sassen creates images in which abstraction and performance intertwine. In this evocative and imaginary realm of intense colour and textures, the imagery is rich with associative references that allow for layered readings and responses. Her new works also include seemingly abstract compositions: mundane objects and apparently incidental motifs are transformed with collage, filters and streaks of pigment to the point of where their original forms lie unrecognizable below Sassen’s interventions.
After the success of the former publication “Lexicon” in collaboration with artbeat publishers, this is the second “Japanese photo book” the artist has published. With the delicate embroidery on the cover, the book design represents Sassen’s aesthetic eye on the world.
