The Abstract Series
Abstract Series Issue 1: The Abstract Series Issue 1 features ten drawings by Kate Hensley, all completed in mixed settings. What the viewer will find here is a map to the unconscious: you will not, however, find a trace of directions. This is less a guidebook for the subconscious dwellers than it is the raw collected data from an amateur cartographer of the cosmos. //// Edition of 20. 8 1/2″x11″, ten pages, stitched binding, hand-painted covers, with artist’s hand-selected soundtrack, sealed. $10 ppd.
Abstract Series Issue 2: The second round of collected data from the amateur cartographer of the cosmos. This issue, unlike the first, features opposites, then the parallel conjectures, outlined by the minute fragments between darkened points in space, which are also the contents of the unconscious. The process of succumbing to such alien, confusing terrain led to these, the contents of the collection, portraits of the unfathomable spectres of some mysterious and haunted otherworld (which are portraits of the inner world, thus an interexistence between space and the mind). What emerges is a slow processional toward a union between both the random and the pure emotion and gut of whatever space/mind matter, which creates a map toward the meaning which is the looming undercurrent found in anything. //// Collection of ten drawings. Individually stitched covers, stitched binding. 8.5″x11″, black and white. Numbered and signed edition of 20. Artist’s personally selected musical soundtrack. $15 ppd.
Abstract Series Issue 3: The Abstract Series has completed the third issue in a series of private amateur cosmos cartographer outlines, diagrams, and sketches. What is hinted at in these pages is a vague decoding of the outer limits, a daily struggle with the unknown, a mind lost in the surrealist activities of alien terrain. Warning to the viewer: do not use these cosmos atlases as actual maps – you will get lost. Our cartographer, though familiar and comfortable with her otherworldly surroundings, is acquainting with and reporting from a universe (multiverse?) of different dimensions. Our cosmos cartographer is preparing us for a deeper dive, the progression in her series has been strange and luminous, although symbiotically murky. The unknown is funny like that. //// 8.5″x11″ ten original drawings, handpainted covers, acrylics, stitched binding, signed and numbered edition of 40. First 20 accompanied by hand selected soundtrack.
