This screenprint reflects a recent development in Canning’s work; he seems to be searching beyond the immediate appearance of the external world for some deeper sense of its nature; darker tones and more subdued colours have emerged, enlivened in the case of Southbank by the splash of brilliant orange and the vigorous slash of yellow.

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.
