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.
Charming Baker & Jealous in Miami
Soho House has commissioned Charming Baker to create an installation in their Miami Beach House. Created in two chapters, the exhibition features 153 original portrait drawings of ducklings inside the House and an oversize toy plane on their private beach, that appears to have crashed. ‘Ultimately we’re all sitting ducks at some point, we have no choice, and sometimes we choose not to have a choice.’More
Ben Eine Kaspersky Collaboration
As always, Jealous Print Studio has been a hive of activity, but one of the most exciting releases in recent months has been quite a special collaboration. After being approached by Kaspersky Lab (the internet security giants) to help celebrate their 20th anniversary, a plan was hatched to combine their special birthday with internet security and street art. Soon settling on mutual favourite Ben Eine and his bold iconic fonts, we set to work to make the discussion a reality.More
Jealous have worked with online gallery Eyestorm for many years now, creating screenprint editions for their roster of artists. Most recently we’ve had Eyestorm back in the Studio, this time with Lucie Bennett and her delicate line work, which softly hints at figure and form.More
