A Users Guide to Married Life, 2012 Amikam Toren
Amikam Toren makes canvases, works on paper and objects that take found images and 'improve' or mend them. For example, a shattered milk bottle is painstakingly reassembled to a state of near completeness. Language, meaning and interpretation are key preoccupations in Toren's work. Here he transforms the bland graphics of signage into an expression of the emotional values of a shared existence. This limited edition has now been included in the Government Art Collection.
Edition of 100, signed and numbered on the front.
As is traditional in editions publishing, prices will rise as an edition starts to sell out.
