Humpty Dumpty had a great fall, as the nursery rhyme goes. Unlike the original Humpty, whose thin shell cracked beyond repair when he hit the ground, muralist Amanda Lynn is well on her way to recovery after a recent fall from a very big wall.
In support of Amanda, archival print studio Sugar Press Art presents Humpty Dumpty, a virtual benefit show featuring a selection of work from Amanda Lynn and her friends at Sugar Press. Curated by founder Anne Martin, Humpty Dumpty includes work from Lady Mags, Elle, Ursula Young, Gloria Muriel, RISK, Pursue, Jet Martinez, Alonso Delgadillo, Monty Montgomery, Tatiana Suarez, Henry Lewis, Monty Montgomery, Nicholas Danger, Jorge Gutierrez Garcia, Prairie Prince, Leon Loucheur, Lucien Shapiro, Megan Shaffer, and Erin Yoshi, among others. The show corresponds with an exquisite new print drop from Amanda, “Paradise,” which is now available for purchase through Sugar Press, along with the rest of the work in Humpty Dumpty. All proceeds from the show benefit Amanda Lynn directly in her recovery process.
“The work we do is sometimes dangerous,” says fellow muralist Erin Yoshi, whose painting “The Melting World” appears in Humpty Dumpty. “We are up high and often push our bodies to the limit. My dear friend Amanda Lynn is one of those artists who goes big and works incredibly hard. She was also there for me in a time when I was injured, and so I am honored to support her in any way I can, to show up in a time she needs me and our community.”
Printed on 100 percent recycled paper, “Paradise” is hand painted, signed, and numbered in an edition of 25; each print is unique and may vary slightly from one to the next. Humpty Dumpty features a total of nine works from Amanda, including “Now I See,” Full Circle,” and “Pieces of Paradise.” Editions are limited, so head over to the show to support Amanda Lynn in her recovery. As her friend Erin Yoshi says, “This is a great time to do so.”
