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.

This print is a timed release meaning the edition size is determined by the number of prints purchased.

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.

Magnus Gjoen

London-born Magnus is a prolific artist whose work threads the delicate line between subjects of life and death. Each artwork is the sum of many contradictions: evocative and glamorous yet eerily macabre. Combining Renaissance source material with his own distinct motifs and patterns, Magnus’ work hovers delightfully between styles. Magnus often explores the relationship between power and fragility through his work, juxtaposing these two states. Throughout his career, Magnus has built a broad and highly engaged global audience and his own celebrity following.



We love how Magnus' artwork is a flurry of contradictions. Life and death, old and new, glamorous yet macabre: Magnus toes the line between each contradiction, resulting in a completely unique aesthetic. We love how the artist combines Renaissance and Classical source material with his own distinct motifs, hovering between styles and reinventing traditional artistic techniques. Magnus sources imagery from museum archives and other fragments from the past to create an unmistakable dissonance within his work.
