Listening to music is an essential part of Anthony Frost’s creative process and song titles, quotes from lyrics or references to musical genres often become titles for his exuberant paintings and prints. Bleached Blues probably carries such an association as well as being reflected in the arrangement of colours he has used. He has combined screenprinting with woodblock in this work to add a pronounced textural element, a technique he also used in his other work in the University collection.
Printed and published by Advanced Graphics London as part of the London Suite II portfolio. Edition of 75.
This work is part of a portfolio of 20 prints produced by Advanced Graphics London in 2012, produced to celebrate 30 years since their first print venture in 1982: The London Suite, prints by ten London-based artists. This second suite includes 20 London artists, including six of the original 1982 contributors and eight RAs, who were all asked to produce screenprints with size being the only constraint. Some works have the addition of woodblock and some have as many as 25 separate printings or layers within the image.
