A Hand-signed Silkscreen and Archival Pigment in Colour Framed Set by James McQueen

This hand-signed complex, rich and expressive limited-edition framed set is part of the artist’s newest collection Special Edition. McQueen’s sensitive respect for vintage books has a stark and comical contrast to the bold and provocative titles that feature on the artwork. The artist complex application of paint elevates his art beyond the mere imitation of a nostalgic object towards an art that is rich and expressive, exploring themes of Pop art and abstraction.

The titles and sentiments are evocative, playful, and sometimes cynical, depicted through a process of layering the canvas with thickly applied expressive brush strokes, characteristic of Abstract Expressionism. The anonymous artist also incorporates drip painting into a number of his canvases alongside his classic vintage style with his characteristic signature monkey.

Bold colours reflect the satirical quotes throughout the collection, subverting the vintage aesthetic of historical books. The poignant quotes thus complete these bold modern artworks also replete with contemporary art influences, from Rothko to Tracey Emin.

"Books, like people, have personalities." - James McQueen
