Contemporary London-based gallery Maximillian William has collaborated with the award-winning InOtherWords imprint Coco Capitán to publish a book entitled Naïvy, following her first solo exhibition in the English capital.

The exhibition that opened past October revolved around the artist’s longstanding fascination with the sea and the mythology of maritime culture. The book tries to highlight some large-scale photographs of Capitán’s paintings and artist-embellished found objects.

“Capitán takes the sea and its attendant themes of adventure and isolation as a framework through which to reimagine a collection of works; some are new, some are old, and as is characteristic for the multimedia artist, the selection spans multiple mediums: photographs sit alongside paintings, ephemera next to handwritten texts,” as per a statement by the gallery.

Get a closer look at the Naïvy book in the slideshow below and then head to Maximillian William’s website to learn more.
