Screen prints by the Scottish sculptor and artist Sir Eduardo Paolozzi (7 March 1924 – 22 April 2005).
I can’t make my mind up if I actually like these prints or not. I certainly like the first one better than the following two. The reason I am so fascinated by these pieces are that they are screen printed. How is that even possible with so many variations and colours? I have been screen printing quite a bit myself – I think it starts to get really complicated to get the print right even with just three colours!
So – Very impressive pieces of work!
- 1: Moonstrips Empire News: Secrets Of Internal Combustion Engine, 1967. Screenprint on paper.
- 2: “Hollywood Wax Museum from Zero Energy Experimental Pile (Z.E.E.P)” 1969-70
Screenprint on paper. Diverse mix of elements features; Sputnik, attitude indicators, Mecha robots, Marylin Monroe and the uneasy focal point of a NASA space monkey.
- 3: “B.A.S.H”1971
Screenprint on paper. Flat colour, more geometric.
