Join us on March 2 at 2 pm for and gallery talk with Chicago artist Paul Lamantia on his exhibition Phantasmagoria, his life, and his practice. The discussion will be moderated by Aron Packer.
One After 909 is thrilled to present Phantasmagoria, a solo exhibition by Paul Lamantia. The title refers to a form of horror theatre popular in the Victorian era, which was designed to shock and scare audiences through supernatural optical illusions. Lamantia’s mixed media works on paper are phantasmagoric in their dark depictions of the subconscious mind.
The limited edition screen print is inspired by Dominguez’s “Grid and Roses” (2018) painting. The design is based on tortilla warmers that were embroidered by the artist’s mother, Silvia, when she was a child, the oldest female of 11 siblings.
This print was created in collaboration with the artist and One After 909 Editions for our second edition (002) release print. Each print is screen printed in house, numbered, titled and signed by the Artist, with a limited edition of 25 prints.
