Win: A limited edition artwork by New York-based Kiwi artist Natasha Wright

With her striking abstract works created through the filter of unapologetic feminism, New Zealand artist Natasha Wright has well and truly made her mark in New York. While the city that never sleeps is in a Covid-19-induced lockdown, Wright has crafted a creative response, with a limited edition of silkscreen prints from the series Print Aid. 

Created in collaboration with silkscreen studio Pegasus Prints in Williamsburg, alongside Pace Gallery artist James Siena, the work Resurrection 20 is based off a large painting referencing the feminine X chromosome.

“I think a lot about the representation of females throughout history alongside contemporary references,” Wright says. “Through painting I have developed an iconic language and an emblematic representation based on the female form. The X structure of the painting suggests both the form of a woman with her arms outstretched and also the feminine X chromosome.”

The limited edition of 35 prints is available to purchase for $US300 from here, with a portion of sales assisting professional visual artists in times of emergency through The Artists Fellowship.

We have the chance for one lucky Denizen to win one of these signed and numbered editions of Ressurection 20, by Natasha Wright valued at $US300.

Entries must be received no later than 5pm on Wednesday 13th May and the winner will immediately be notified via email. To be eligible to win, entrants must live in New Zealand. The prize will be shipped directly from New York, which, due to Covid-19, may result in delivery delays.
