My Liberties - Blue (2019) poster by Dorothy Iannone
A fab poster featuring the bold and brave My Liberties - blue, (2019), by the American artist, Dorothy Iannone (b. 1933). This work is one of three Statues of Liberty that Iannone created as a mural for The High Line park in New York, where they were exhibited from 2018-2020.
Approximate dimensions: 59.4 cm x 84.1 cm
Since the 1960s, Iannone has developed a colourful, ornamental imagery that unfolds in paintings, drawings, books, video sculptures and more. Freedom, free love and liberated sexuality are central themes, and the artist draws on references ranging from antiquity, Icelandic sagas, Christianity and Baroque to Indian tantra, world literature and film history.
Many works have the character of psychedelic 'graphic novels', where handwritten texts and images together tell the stories - bluntly and with the humour embedded in both linguistic and pictorial details.
Dorothy Iannone was born in Boston, USA, but has lived and worked in Europe since 1967. Some of her work is held at the Louisiana Museum, Denmark. They created this poster for the 2022 Iannone show.
