A brand new silkscreen print by Tim Southall hot off the press. The artist has this to say about the print:
After a week or so of the very strict lockdown here in Spain, I began to go into something of a creative ‘freeze’ as my mind decided to go into lockdown too! Following several days spent mostly in bed, I shook myself up and began working on some imagined head and shoulder drawings, going wherever my isolated mind took me. These led on to making monotypes and I am hoping that the results of this will make a nice series of works. Here is ‘All Dolled Up With Nowhere To Go – The Pinstripe Suit’. This portrait depicts a young, dishevelled office worker, now furloughed. So long has it been for the need to dress for work, the pinstripe suit – long a symbol of the city worker – has become tattered and moth eaten, a reflection of the subject’s state of mind.
Now in the print studio in Birmingham Tim has re-worked the image and made it into a silkscreen print as part of the series ‘All Dolled Up With Nowhere To Go’. This 7 colour silkscreen is printed on Somerset Velvet, a heavyweight 300 gram handmade paper from St Cuthbert’s Mill in Somerset, and is in a limited edition of 50
