TheyThemTheir (front)

Made on the occasion of Dean Hutton/Goldendean's launch of their book Plan B. A Gathering of Strangers (Or) This Is Not Working (2019). The design is part of the artist's typographic series of mantras.


In an ever-evolving series of works, Goldendean presents moments of radical softness celebrating the right to be seen as beautiful, safe, and loveable – from mantras made textual meditations to glowing, breathing sculptures these “comfort objects” are intimate works at the intersection of art and love from which we can resist those social violences that seek to make us invisible.
