About the Artwork:

The Monkey’s Paw is one of the greatest myths of our time to inspire art, film and literature. My interpretation tells the story of the family who attempts to earn financial gain by using the cursed monkey’s paw to wish for money, only to then lose their son in an accident. They receive the money they wished for due to a life insurance policy. Next, the mother wishes for her son to return to her, and that’s when they hear a knock at the door! We can only assume that the evil paw has stricken again and raised the son from his grave. The father reaches for the paw and makes one final wish and the knocking stops. My painting personifies “fate” as a giant, all encompassing alien head, and whispers of magic expressed through the gentle tilt of wand carrying wizard hands. – Ten Yetman

About the Artist:

Ten Yetman is a visual artist born in Winnipeg, Canada. After attending the Fine Arts Program at the University of Manitoba (2004-2009) she spent many years living in Mexico City and afterwards in Nagoya, Japan teaching art classes and exhibiting her work. Heavily influenced by her experiences abroad, her work explores cultural and historical expressions of death and immortality. After moving back to Canada in 2013 she has been continuing to paint and exhibit work in Canada and the United States.

Ten’s work is a seductive hyper-juxtaposition, referencing both fun bright colours and patterns, parties and beach scenes and “uncomfortable” images of horror. Her most recent work features creatures of her own invention and has been heavily influenced by the cemeteries of Real de Catorce, Fellini Films, DEVO music videos, 80s’s fabrics, Renaissance Art, 1950’s and 60’s Sci Fi films, Monty Python, Space Travel and British Literature.

Recently Ten’s work has been featured in Group shows at Arch Enemy Arts in Philadelphia, La Luz de Jesus in LA and Trash Lamb Gallery in San Diego.
