Unable are the Loved to Die, 2020
Unable are the Loved to Die, 2020

'Unable are the Loved to Die, 2020' is a fabulous giclée timed release from Magnus Gjoen. Printed onto cotton rag paper, this print is signed and numbered by the artist.

PLEASE NOTE: Artwork only available until 10pm, Monday 30th November.

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 Marys 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

We’ve been working with Magnus Gjoen since 2012. 

With extensive experience working as a designer under Vivienne Westwood, Magnus certainly knows a thing or two about style. Since making the move from designer to artist, Magnus has built a broad and highly engaged global audience. Magnus often explores the relationship between power and fragility through his work, juxtaposing the two states to create maximum visual and conceptual effect. Magnus sources imagery from museum archives and other fragments from the past to create an unmistakable dissonance within his work. We love the blending of both old and new that is so often a feature within Magnus’ artwork, creating a distinct and beautiful aesthetic. 



Magnus is a prolific artist whose work continues to tread the delicate line between life and death. Each artwork is a tightrope walk of contradictions: evocative and glamorous yet eerily macabre. Since his debut at the Underdog Gallery, Magnus has had a range of solo shows in galleries worldwide and his work is highly sought-after by private collectors and public clients. Magnus has exhibited in Milan, Florida, London, Hamburg, Amsterdam and Stockholm to name a few and he has many more upcoming to look forward to.
