Julia Chiang's Ohh Ahh Mmm edition for The Standard
Presenting a new limited edition piece by artist Julia Chiang, exclusively available at The Standard just in time for Valentine's Day, 2012. Ooh Ahh Mmm combines text and handmade objects as a potential response to all five senses. This piece has the fragility and time of being made letter by letter while being nailed directly into the wall with confidence in its impulse and presence.
A unique edition of 25, each 9 letter set is handmade of earthenware and glazed a rich glossy red. This piece follows up Julia's edition of apples from Valentine's Day 2010, entitled, " All For You."
Each letter is 2 1/4" high x 1 3/4"- 2 1/4" deep. As pictured here, Ooh Ahh Mmm is approximately 24" wide if installed horizontally and 9" x 8" if installed vertically. Installation dimensions can vary depending on space.
The letter "A" is initialed, dated and numbered on the back.
Included in the package are installation instructions, a set of tiny brass nails and of course a certificate of authenticity.
