Phillipa's Screen by Mick Moon

Phillipa

Early in his career Moon produced a series of very large works in which he superimposed painted layers of canvas to create a feeling of spacial ambiguity, as in two examples in the Tate collection, Drawing 1976 and Table 1978. In this much later and much smaller screenprint a similar effect is created through the layering of delicate tracery, making Phillipa's Screen to appear suspended in space.


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.
