Ruth Marten, ‘Histoire Un-Naturelle’26th April - 6th June, 2008
“In addition to prolific stints as an illustrator and tattoo artist, native New Yorker Ruth Marten has been exhibiting her art in galleries for decades. For her latest body of work Marten’s embellished recombinants of 17th and 18th century engravings seamlessly weave radical alterations, subtle visual humour and ecstatic fantasy into delirious social landscapes.” Paper Magazine, New York
“Erotic effervesence.” Dominique Nahas
Isis Editions will also be publishing ‘Histoire Un-Naturelle’ on the occasion of this exhibition, feauring plates hand coloured by the artist.
