TRANSFIGURATION is a 9 ink risographic publication printed by Can Can Press, an independently-run printing press and publishing house in Mexico City.

The book brings together 38 color plates based on Aurora Pellizzi’s latest series of sculptural/pictorial wall–hangings made of naturally hand–dyed, felted and woven wool. In keeping with the artist’s investigation of natural dyes and pigments, each plate explores chromatic relationships through carefully designed layering of the eco-friendly rice–based ink characteristic of the riso printing process.

Within the square bounds of the page, figure and ground twist, turn and unfold, oscillating between abstraction and figuration.

The book was printed on the occasion of the exhibition by the same name at Canada Gallery, New York and is currently available in New York at Canada Gallery & Judi Rosen; at Oven Universe in Sapporo, Japan; and online in Mexico and USA, here.
