New print release. This week, The Working Proof is happy to once again team up with artist Andrea D’Aquino to offer her print Support System to benefit the Shama Foundation. Similar to her last print (Green Zen I + II), Andrea’s work has a lightness to it. Her use of bright, translucent colors, floating figurative and animal images adds to the dreamlike quality of the print. This visual stream of consciousness is best explained by Andrea herself:
I try to allow ideas to happen organically; meaning that I try not to over-control or plan too much. I allow them room to grow, and take on a life of their own. If sketches are too specific, the end result tends to lose some life and spontaneity. I’d say that very concept in itself it the idea of this piece: all thoughts and actions are connected to each other, and have an effect on each other. Our thoughts, actions, the physical world around us, there is no solid boundary between them. Something has affected us, and we in turn, affect something else, and hopefully for the better.
This print is available in multiple sizes. It was digitally signed by the artist. The 8×10, 11×14, and 16×20 prints are numbered by The Working Proof. Learn more here. Read our interview with Andrea D’Aquino here, and buy the print here.
