About the edition
New York–based painter Jamian Juliano–Villani has created an exclusive t–shirt for House of Voltaire. Juliano–Villani’s paintings are composed using an atlas of appropriated images, personal photographs, and reproductions of existing artworks. In this work, Juliano–Villani draws from well-known imagery of Eataly, the largest Italian food hall in the world and eight-time Olympic gold medalist, Usain Bolt.
The artist wryly refers to her compositions as ‘arranged marriages’ in which imagery is painted, repainted, and edited directly on the canvas, an almost masochistically longhand form of collage that is at odds with the speed at which we consume images today.
