Art-el Print News

Evening all
Just to give people the heads up on a few Art-el prints that are currently available in limited numbers at www.Art-el.co.uk.

First up we have a print from the legend that is Mr Jago.

“What was to go on the canvas was not a picture but an event,” mused art critic Harold Rosenburg of Jackson Pollock some fifty years back. The same observation can just as easily be applied to Mr Jago, humanoid of the Bristol scene, and founding member of the renowned Scrawl Collective. His explosive artwork layers robotic characters with free-flowing strokes and inky splashes, instantly calling to mind the chaotic intensity of “Jack the Dripper’s” riotous screens.

 

 

 

Secondly from Brighton’s hot young thing that is Pam Glew, and her Crime Scene screen print.
Pam Glew is a contemporary British artist, working in unusual media to produce modern paintings. Manipulating images of female icons in horror films in the current “Fear series”, she plays with our notion of paranoia, attraction and the American Dream. The portraits often portray vacuous beauty, within a compellingly seductive image.
The 100 x 70cm print is a 6 colour edition (grey, white, cream, red, blue and black) the beauty of it is that the layers are translucent quite stippled, so it looks very original and has a great depth,

The grey layer is mixed very loosely with a medium which mixes when it is being printed, so the whole piece has some great movement and layers of colour add to this a final coat of “dirty varnish” which ties in all the colours together, and makes the print much richer.
