ARNE SVENSON, Sock Monkey #48, 2002; 14 x 11 in., GSP. Edition of 30.
Arne Svenson’s Sock Monkeys series came about after meeting Ron Warren and his collection of over 1,800 sock monkeys. Playful in nature, this series also reveals the thread of obsessive curiosity that runs throughout Svenson’s oeuvre. His work has been exhibited widely internationally and is held in a number of private and public collections.
