A site devoted to the work of outstanding contemporary artist Magdalena Mimmi
For the first time in many years
is allowing some of her pen and ink drawings
to be reproduced as limited edition prints, for sale exclusively through this site.
Over the coming months we will be featuring some
unique themed work, beginning with her much
admired ‘Shut Down Environments’ series.
This series caused quite a stir when it was first seen;
certainly in the art world, but surprisingly, also among
the medical fraternity.
The reason being the series was created at a time
when Magdalena was undergoing an experimental drug
test regime for a rare form of Parkinson’s disease.
She painstakingly and carefully captured the strange,
intense feelings induced by her treatment in a unique
series of allegorical pictures which stunned her doctors in a way that no verbal communication could ever hope to achieve.
Just click on the pictures below to see for yourself,
we’re sure you won’t be disappointed.
