Amy Pleasant
As They Touch, Edition 1 of 12

2020

About the Item

“I spent [2020] thinking about human interaction and more specifically, touch. During this period of isolation many works in the studio explored images of reclining figures that appear heavy, exhausted by the anxiety of the unknown.” - Amy Pleasant As They Touch looks down on a pair of legs, one bent into the crook of another as if sprawled on a bed. A second pair of legs was then positioned on top to suggest not only movement but also that these two figures could be sharing space, one touching the other, even if just slightly. Pleasant’s work includes painting, drawing, and ceramic sculpture, all exploring the body and language through repetition. This edition grew from a series of ink on paper drawings in Pleasant’s studio in Birmingham, Alabama and was printed in an edition of 12 outside of Bozeman, Montana at Brackett Creek during the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020.

  • Venus by Rosie Emerson, hand painted silk screen, sexy portrait photography
    By Rosie Emerson
    Located in Dallas, TX
    This piece is sold with a custom wood copper finish box frame, perfect for a contemporary setting. This gorgeous artwork on paper was created initially with a screen print base of the model, then Rosie hand finishes the work with a unique splash and painted composition. Some call them Unique Prints. The base image is only used 9 times Rosie Emerson, born in 1981, is a contemporary artist working almost exclusively on representing the female form. Emerson’s figures draw reference from archetypes old and new, from Artemis to the modern day super model, each solitary figure, an allegory of her own fantasy. Interested in surface, the interplay between photography and painting. Emerson’s works are playful constructs; Photography is used, not as a device for capturing reality but for creating romanticised optical illusions. Inspired by her love of theatre, performance, shrines and rituals, she uses lighting, costume, set and prop making, alongside printmaking and painting to create other worldly one off pieces. Her photography is inspired by both the drama of the baroque, and ethereal qualities of Pre Raphaelite works. Other important influences include late medieval and renaissance paintings, Japanese prints, and magical realist literature. Emerson’s screen...
