Description
Viviane Sassen - Of Mud and Lotus - 2017
Photography - Quantity: 1 - Book

First edition & printing, as new.

This work is focusing on the artist’s attention for female power. With collages and unique hand- coloured 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.

This work 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.
