24-HOUR EDITION DROP I KATIE BENN
20-21 DECEMBER 2022
6-6 PM CET
Katie Benn is a multidisciplinary artist from San Francisco. Although her roots are in the Bay Area, since late 2020, she has set up her home and art studio in Southern Oregon. Inspired by all things goofy and mysterious, her personal dreamwork, and the general absurdity of being alive, she explores themes relating to the human condition and her inner world.
ABOUT THE WORK
"AD ASTRA PER ASPERA, an old saying in Latin meaning 'To the stars, through difficulties,' is the text within my piece, as is the title. Employing free association, oil pastel, and graphite on paper, this is a portrait of a person finding their true north and moving in the direction of their highest desires despite the challenges of Earth, its gravity, and the fear of the unknown. I believe that following one's inner path, which may appear confusing or foolish to others, is the loveliest way to be alive."
– Katie Benn
ABOUT THE EDITION
The artist individualizes each edition with the words PER ASPERA in graphite underneath AD ASTRA which is part of the printed oil pastel drawing.
ABOUT THE FRAME
The frame is white spruce wood with acrylic glass that has 84% UV protection. Framed dimensions are 63 x 43 cm; 24.8 x 16.9 in.
ABOUT THE 24-HOUR EDITION DROP
The 24-HOUR EDITION DROP is a concept that allows artists to sell an unlimited number of physical editions within a limited time frame of 24 hours on EXPANDED.ART. Each 24-HOUR EDITION DROP edition will be available for 24 hours only, then never again.
ABOUT THE EDITION NUMBER
The editions are numbered randomly, i.e., the edition number is not chronologically assigned to the time of order receipt. All 24-HOUR EDITION DROP prints are made to order. Each artwork will be produced and personalized specifically for each client; therefore, the artwork is not eligible for return.
