Renowned artist Mark Ryden will sign copies of his newest release The Tree Show (2009), a hardcover collection of recent works at The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles next Saturday, January 31st, 2009.
Through paintings and sculpture inspired by the Roman poet Ovid's tales of transformation in Metamorphoses, Ryden explores the mythological and transformative properties of trees, offering familiar preoccupations in new settings.
In addition, Silence (2008), a framed 24 x 18-inch limited-edition silkscreen (shown above, right) will be available for purchase, with all proceeds benefiting MOCA. This print was commissioned by the MOCA Projects Council, a major support group comprised of women collectors and patrons of the arts. A good cause and gorgeous artwork? What more could you possibly need?
It all goes down next Saturday from 3-5pm, so mark your calendars and get your own bit of magical Ryden creation.
