Jealous were delighted to continue their working relationship with the ICA last month, producing a new edition for Australian artist Helen Johnson.
The print entitled Argument, 2017 is a digital archival print with emboss and
gold metallic and nylobag silkscreen overlays. The edition marked an exciting development for the studio, with the large scale relief printer
being used for the first time to create a bespoke emboss on to surface around the faces on the print. The work was commissioned and launched
to coincide with Helen's solo exhibition Warm Ties.
Argument is almost a printed simulacra of Johnson’s painterly style. Depicting two people deep in conversation, or
arguing, the edition follows Johnson’s socio-political interest Australian identity politics. Helen Johnson is an artist based in Melbourne. Recent solo exhibitions include Barron Field as part of the 2016 Glasgow International, Slow Learners at Château Shatto, Los Angeles, 2015 and Cafe Fatigue at Sutton Gallery, Melbourne, 2015.
Ann-Marie James: ALCHEMY
Alchemy is an exhibition of beautiful contemporary artworks by Ann-Marie James.
Wessex Museums invited Ann-Marie James to delve into the collections of their four partner museums (Wiltshire Museum, Dorset County Museum, Poole Museum and The Salisbury Museum) and choose an object from each to inspire a series of artworks.
She spent a year creating the finished pieces, all in gold or white. Gold derives from the Bush Barrow Lozenge (Wiltshire Museum) and the tale of Bacchus and Midas (Poole Museum); white from the chalk that the Amesbury Archer (The Salisbury Museum) was originally found in, and the white of the Roman mosaic (Dorset County Museum).
Her techniques included drawing, painting, printmaking and gilding with 24ct gold leaf.
