Sculptor Mia Westerlund Roosen came to OG for a two week project in 2012. Working diligently and calmly payed off: Mia completed eighteen monotypes as well as twelve editions. Her monotypes are powerful and elegant–some reminiscent of the human body or oceanic matter, all structural or organic in form. They range in size from 12 1/2” x 9”–23” x 28 1/2” and are priced from $1000-$1900.
Mia composed a series of eight lovely yet unsettling white, yellow, and blue chine colle etchings titled Guantanamo Series depicting fence patterns that hold the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. They are printed on Rives BFK Grey paper sized 9 1/2” x 12”. The series will be available as a box-set presented in a cloth-bound box with fiberglass encased metal netting fabricated by the artist. Prints are also available individually for $500. Once the edition is printed the prices will be $4400 and $600 respectively.
Mia also produced another group of four gorgeous silk collagraph etchings entitled Buttons and Loops printed on Revere Silk paper and sized 11 3/4” x 14 1/2”. Their pre-publication price is $600, $700 once printed.
Continuing on a theme she began on a previous project with Sue, Mia worked on two vibrant and contrasting copper plate etchings titled Count Series #3 and Count Series #4. They are 18” x 24 1/2” and 24 1/2” x 18 and priced at $1100 each.
Lastly, Mia formulated a pair of intensely complicated-to-print but beautifully simple in subject matter solar and collagraph plate etchings entitled Mirrored Lines #1 and Mirrored Lines #2. They are 25” x 30 1/2” and are priced at $1700 each.
