The Artful Home: Aili Schmeltz at 20x200

I'm a little late to the party on this one, but I'm captivated by the current 20x200 print release, "Radar," from artist Aili Schmeltz.

Depicting the two sides of modern-day Los Angeles -- "plush, manicured landscape[s] in an otherwise desert geography ... the blatant artifice of [a place where] hill-top homes float precariously on earth that has a topographical complexity of embedded catastrophe" -- the piece embodies Schmeltz's "love/hate relationship" with L.A. (Who among us can't relate to that?)

Luckily, it looks like there are still plenty of these prints left. An 8.5-by-11-inch version (from a limited edition of 200) costs $20 and a 17-by-22-inch print (from an edition of 20) will run you $200. (Hence the name 20x200.)

Check out "Radar" right here, and see more of Schmeltz's work here.
