Bea Bonafini Limited Edition

Bea Bonafini’s work expands the possibilities and interplay of painting, tapestry and sculpture. By engraving cork to create two entangled octopus, her Limited Edition, which is part of our Curated Editions collection New Mythologies, is a beautifully-textured, almost otherworldly piece.
