Mark Ryden signs 'The Snow Yak Show' tonight at SFMOMAJuxtapoz // Thursday, 12 Aug 2010
Traverse Ryden's vast wintry landscapes into the frigid domain of the majestic Snow Yak. In this set of work, Ryden paints with a pallet of subtle whites and greys to create mysterious scenes of soft snow, clouds, and fur.
The inhabitants of this wintry world are bare angelic figures and their companion woolly snow yaks. These works were originally shown at the prestigious Tomio Koyama Gallery in Tokyo in February of 2009. This book features all of the works, as well as photographs of the work on display and of Ryden's trip through Japan.
2010; hardcover; 68 pages
