About the Work
In our 2016 collaboration with Larsen, Roberta Smith had recently quipped that Caroline Larsen's work was akin to “if Carmen Miranda made paintings.” In our latest collaboration The Plaids, we are treated to Larsen’s characteristically intense attention to detail of form — acrylic paint, pencil crayon, and Japanese origami paper adorn twelve large-scale archival pigment prints on museum etching paper — but also the forms that surround the form, as the kaleidoscopic shifting environments both compete with and enhance the surreal nature of her explosive arrangements.
Caroline Larsen (b. Canada) has held solo exhibitions at Over the Influence (Hong Kong), Mindy Solomon Gallery (Miami), The Hole (New York), Dio Horia (Mykonos), Andrew Rafacz (Chicago), General Hardware Contemporary (Toronto), Gordon Gallery 2 (Tel Aviv), and Wave Hill Public Gardens (Bronx) among others. Select group shows include a joint presentation by The Pit and The Hole (Palm Springs), Mindy Solomon in collaboration with Albertz Benda, Dean Collection (Miami, Berlin), Honey Ramka (Brooklyn), Surface Matters (San Francisco), Drake Devonshire (Canada), 68 Projects (Berlin), and Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto). Larsen lives and works in Brooklyn.
Authentication & Resale
Signed, dated, and numbered by the artist on front. This work is also accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by Exhibition A.
Be sure to keep your Certificate of Authenticity (COA) in a safe place. We are unable to replace or reissue COAs.
Please email email@example.com to have this framed. Framed artwork is custom framed once it is ordered. Allow 2-4 weeks for framing and delivery.
All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Any artwork that is floated will be placed in a frame that has a ⅝” wide flat face and is 1 5/16” deep. Work will be floated with a 1” border around it.
