    Don’t forget that we have an amazing exhibition in Gallery this week starting tomorrow created by Villayat Sunkmanitu entitled ‘Intimacy With Plants’. The exhibition aims to raise awareness for those suffering with PTSD and shows how photography helped the artist overcome his own battle with the condition and what can be achieved without having to leave the space of your own garden. Villayat will be in Gallery tomorrow 1pm – 4pm.

    We hope to see you there. Until then, please enjoy the creative blog written below talking about the resurgence of Pop Art in the art world.

    ‘Marlena’ by Nick Holdsworth
    Medium: Original Art: Hand Pulled Silkscreen, Stencil and Gloss Paint on Wood (Framed)
    Dimensions: 33″ x 26″
    Price: £995 or just 10 monthly instalments of just £99.50 (Interest Free)

    We’ve all heard of it and we all probably have some idea what it’s all about. Made famous predominately by artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein in the 1960’s, it has in the last few years had something of a revival (if it ever really went away) thanks to a group of artists inspired by the movement.

    The notion of Pop Art really got going in mid 1950’s Britain one of the earliest examples being Richard Hamilton’s collage entitled ‘Just What Is It That Makes Today’s Homes So Different, So Appealing?’ (Above) Pop Art blends different aspects of mass culture, such as advertising, comic books, packaging and mundane cultural objects.

    The movement developed in two different strands, one from within Britain and the other from the USA. For British artists Pop Art was a matter of ideas fuelled by American popular culture viewed from afar, while the American artists were inspired by the experience of living within that culture creating two distinct looks either side of the Atlantic.

    ‘Dancing Skull’ by Mike Edwards
    Medium: Signed limited edition, hand finished screen print onto Paper (framed) Edition of 100
    Dimensions: 29″ x 29″
    Price: £495 or just 10 monthly instalments of just £49.50 (Interest Free)

    As the movement developed American Pop Art became the dominant style and became something of a phenomenon, reaching its peak during the mid 1960’s. A gradual decline and move away from the style occurred after this feeding into new Post-Modern Art.

    Pop Art has once again resurfaced although this time, the time is more reflective. It aims to both celebrate and criticise what was being created and how they were inspired. Using new contemporary methods and materials they are really rejuvenating an admired art movement into something new, fresh and relevant to today’s audiences.

    Image

    This stunning original (now also available as a print) is created by painting text onto canvas. The size, colour and length of each word is carefully chosen in order to construct a lifelike image of Edward’s subject,in this instance; Bridget Bardot. The finished result is truly astonishing to see, from a far it could simply be taken on face value as a portrait but as you advance the image opens itself up to a whole new viewing experience. 

    Would you believe 5,000 individual letters painted (astonishingly) 4 times each…. remarkable!

    Image

    This wonderful piece has been 4 years in the making. Since being dreamt up by the artist this piece has been a labour of love.
    The work is full of allegorical meaning and depsite its obviously religious connotations, it is only loosely based on the Christian image it conjures. Instead this piece is about the sharing of laughter, truth, humour, struggle, love and betrayal that is ever present within a community.
