Winter on the Rye by Paul Benjamins

Winter on the Rye by Paul Benjamins

As in his paintings, this screenprint shows the importance Benjamins places on colour and texture. Winter on the Rye is given depth through multiple layers of lines of colour overlaying a textured grid provided by the dots of a half-tone photograph of Peckham Rye in South London.


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.
