MESSAGE, the lastest monograph from Sage Vaughn brings to light a selection of this Los Angeles based artist’s amazing mixed-media envelope paintings. Created between 2008 – 2012, these small paintings and collages on letter sized manila envelopes eventually served Vaughn as studies and inspirations for larger pieces of work. Personal, impulsive and immediate, the envelopes are like little secrets, never intended for public consumption. Representing the initial spark inside Vaughn’s head and yet to spill onto the canvas, it’s evident why these creations often became the artist’s personal favorites. Evan Pricco provides a beautiful and poetic piece of prose as an introduction. Edition is limited to 1000 copies.
