The art of Donald and Era Farnsworth draws from the languages of science, myth, the art historical and the spiritual to address environmental and other contemporary issues. This catalog includes an essay by Nick Stone and images from all of the Farnsworths' woven editions, including a series of animistic tree portraits and the ongoing Mythos series, in which centuries-old works are given a respectfully irreverent digital reinterpretation.
Magnolia Editions is a fine art print studio in Oakland, California. For more than twenty years, Magnolia has specialized in experimental and unorthodox projects, working closely with artists to produce and publish print multiples, unique artist's prints, works on paper, and textiles.
