This forthcoming monograph book is based on Josh Tiessen's newest body of work "Vanitas + Viriditas," which first debuted as a solo exhibition at Rehs Contemporary Gallery in New York City in 2023. The Latin title can be translated to "Vanity + Vitality," and reflects the dual approaches to wisdom explored by the two characters Qohelet and Sophia, and their animal companions in the series.

Now the complete collection, with an introduction by Forbes art critic Natasha Gural, will be available in a luxurious full-colour coffee table book. It is complemented by a soothing soundtrack by Zac Tiessen (available on Apple Music and Spotify), recorded at the Budapest Scoring Orchestra.
