Alison Wilding RA, Phaethon, 2016

Known predominantly as a sculptor, Alison Wilding typically clashes materials in acts of balance and contrast. Combining structural forms -  often in pairs - her work suggests narratives of dark vs light, positive vs negative and hard vs soft. She again appreciates a relationship between the elements in Phaethon.

With curving movements of varying solidity and transparency, the three-dimensional quality of her sculptural practice is translated here to a work on paper using a combination of painted washes and knife-cut masking film. 

The dramatic shapes and scale of Phaethon show a direct reference to its title and associations with Greek Myth and the sun. Created with The Print Studio in 2016, the work was featured in the 249th Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy the following year. 

The print is an edition of 30 of which copies are available for sale at £2500 inc VAT and shipping within the U.K. For shipping outside the U.K., please contact the Studio at info@theprintstudio.co.uk

Last year, Wilding was again featured in the Summer Exhibition at The Royal Academy in addition to her solo exhibitions hosted in Bexhill On Sea, Manchester and most recently Cambridge: a show titled On The Edge. The work of the twice Turner-Prize nominee extends internationally having exhibited solo in the U.S. and Canada as well as having collections in locations as far away as Australia. Locally, an example of her sculptural work, Melancholia (2003), can be found within the gardens of Jesus College, Cambridge.

Wilding will also feature as part of The Art of Collaboration at The Heong Gallery, Downing College which opens March 2019. See our last post for further details.

Wilding is represented by Karsten Schubert, based in Soho, London. Further enquiries on the artist and further work can be found through info@karstenschubert.com

Barry Flanagan

We’re currently printing 6 Barry Flanagan plates.

Over the years we’ve printed around 30 editions for Barry, all of them lovely and ideosyncratic. These plates are a mixture of etching and drypoint.

Barry died last year, 31st August. Printing the plates is a reminder of his fabulous fluid drawing. We really miss him.

The prints will be available through Gallerie Lelong, Paris
