TRANSFIGURATION is a nine ink risographic publication printed by Can Can Press, an independently-run printing press and publishing house in Mexico City

The book brings together 38 color plates based on Aurora Pellizzi’s latest series of sculptural/pictorial wall–hangings made of naturally hand–dyed, felted and woven wool. In keeping with the artist’s investigation of natural dyes and pigments, each plate explores chromatic relationships through carefully designed layering of the eco-friendly rice–based ink characteristic of the riso printing process

Aurora Pellizzi was born in Mexico City in 1983 and grew up between New York City and Morelos, Mexico. She studied Art at The Cooper Union School in New York (BFA, 2010) and at New York University (BFA, 2005). Her work has been exhibited in Colombia, France, Italy, Mexico, Morocco, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
