Surrounded by a radiating Pink Tourmaline patterned border (a rock that brings healing and new hope),  'Unable are the Loved to Die’ depicts the Virgin Mary’s assumption. The artwork was conceived while Gjoen was quarantining due to travel restrictions in one of the oldest streets in Florence Via Santa Reparata. The building listed due to a 17th century Madonna painted on the the corner of it and not being able to go outside, Magnus started researching both the Virgin Mary and Santa Reparato. Conflicting stories cast doubt on whether Mary was assumed or if she died first and was then assumed. Roman Catholic teaching holds that Mary was "assumed" into heaven in bodily form, the Assumption; the question of whether or not Mary actually underwent physical death remains open in the Catholic view.



About The Artist - Magnus Gjoen


Magnus Gjoen - former designer for Vivienne Westwood - knows a thing or two about style. Having recently turned his hand to the art of print making, Gjoen creates images that are full of startling beauty as well as a profundity of thought.


His art explores the interaction between power and fragility, juxtaposing the two states for maximum conceptual effect. Using collage and bricolage, often layering sumptuous gold leaf against stark black and white, Gjoen’s work blends a range of styles and media, incorporating a street and pop aesthetic into a fine art approach. His pieces draw on history and allusion, using existing art works or fragments from the past to create his own, contemporary aesthetic.

Gjoen’s work treads a delicate line between humour and horror, and what is borne out of these two opposing forces is often haunting and unsettling, while always saturated with an unrivalled beauty. A tightrope walk of contradictions, Gjoen’s work is rich, evocative and unabashedly glamorous, a combination that marks the emerging British artist out as a unique force to be reckoned with.
