Los Angeles artist Mark Ryden combines the arcane with pop-cultural imagery, as ground from which to make his carefully executed leaps into fantasy. The Tree Show includes depictions of oak trees consuming children, floating tree stumps with "seeing" eyes, imaginary wood nymphs and mythological characters who personify Nature herself. This special edition of Mark Ryden's bestselling The Tree Show features works from the artist's major solo exhibition at the Michael Kohn Gallery in Los Angeles. The book included in this boxed edition includes over 130 color images of paintings, drawings, studies and sculptural works as well as a wealth of Mark's inspirational reference materials. Each copy of this special edition is signed and numbered and comes in a handmade clamshell box covered with a fine Japanese silk. The edition is also packed with an array of "Vintage Souvenirs" including a miniature postcard set, commemorative pin, pennant, bookmark and pencil.
