Paula Crown’s grandmother held the original envelope in her left hand as the Pope blessed her at the Vatican. Inside the envelope were pictures of Crown’s mother, aunts, and uncles. Needless to say, these envelopes became a kind of family heirloom is Crown’s life. The high resolution prints on silk are a commentary on her perception of “air-mail” and communication. The two silk pieces hung parallel to one another so as viewers walked between them, they felt that they were the content of the envelope, as Crown’s family members were years ago.
Two 180 x 115 cm. prints on silk have been conceived at the Factum Arte studios in Madrid for artist Paula Crown. The two prints were sent to Crown´s studio in Chicago on the 1st of December 2016
