Aurel Schmidt’s reclining Buddha print comes from her body of work titled New Gods shown in pop-up exhibitions in Venice and New York City during early 2015. Schmidt presented a continuation of this series in a solo show at Half Gallery in November 2015. Self-taught, she works almost exclusively in colored pencil on paper with the occasional splash of beer, blood, or dirt. Her detailed, surrealist drawings engage the spiritual and the visceral. As she puts it, “things like neo-colonialism, cultural and spiritual capitalism and alienation.”
Print is deckled and framed with 1" float in black or white painted wood, .75" wide flat face and 1.25" deep, with UV acrylic glass.
