This edition has been printed by Philip Taaffe in his studio. Prints might have slight differences with some hand applied brush work.

This edition has been produced on the occasion of The Botanical Mind,Art, Mysticism and the Cosmic Tree, 2020.

'Snakes occur throughout Taaffe’s work as both a liminal symbol— something between the divine and the condemned— and a calligraphic mark. The sand boa, native to the Indus River Valley, is partially invented for the purposes of this image. Similarly, the leaf seen in the background is extrapolated from a 19th century imagining of tropical leaves. The result is a Baudelairian reverie, an “Artificial Paradise” residing between artifice and the paradisiacal.' - Philip Taaffe

Taaffe (b.1955, Elizabeth, New Jersey) studied at the Cooper Union in New York. His first solo exhibition was in New York in 1982. Taaffe has traveled widely in the Middle East, India, South America, and Morocco. He has also lived and worked in Naples from 1988-91. He has been included in numerous museum exhibitions, including the Carnegie International, two Sydney Biennials, and three Whitney Biennials. Taaffe’s work is in numerous public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid.
