Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2012 select two prints!

May 22nd, 2012 | Posted by David in Live Shows

Two of our prints were selected for this year’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

1) Austerity Measure

We knew our Credit Crunch edition was good, but we had no idea it would grace the pages of the Financial Times, be certified by a Central London accounting firm, and accepted by the Royal Academy.

Now the Summer Exhibition features its sibling; our Austerity Measure. This silkscreen print on 2mm greyboard was lasercut. It features unhinged economic phrases gleaned from Radio 4 over the last few years (thank you Robert Peston). When the financial system crashes it isn’t just the solid things; even language melts into thin air.

2) Kilnsea: In Obsolescence

“James Hobbs took two adjacent frames from a 16mm film that captures the turbulent tide at Kilnsea… and enlarged and reproduced them as a cyanotype. Two identical diagrams have been overlaid in a hot silver foil.” Art Review
