The So Young Artist Series is an ongoing project in which we collaborate with some of our favourite artists and designers on one-off items of clothing. In our sixth edition we’ve collaborated with artist, Karen Lederer. Karen’s work has featured in the print edition of So Young several times and we’ve been following her work in awe ever since.
Our collaboration t-shirt uses 3 pieces, “On the front of the t-shirt is my painting, “Owl”. It depicts a Picasso ceramic bowl filled with fruit. The painting celebrates the artwork but also deflates its importance by turning it into a utilitarian object. A number of years ago, I discovered a small catalogue of Picasso’s ceramics in a used bookstore and it began my love affair with his work. As a feminist, I feel complicated about my admiration of this Modernist patriarch. On the back of the shirt are two monoprints. While I make paintings alone in a studio, I make my prints in a bustling community printshop surrounded by people. The prints tend to be looser and more intuitive than my paintings.”
