‘Absent Minded’ – A limited edition silkscreen print on paper with matt glaze, under-colour blend and collaged elements by British artist Joe Webb. ‘Absent Minded’ can be purchased individually or as a set of four (including ‘Absent Minded’, ‘Antares & Love IV’, ‘Daydream’, and ‘Mono’).
In producing silkscreen prints with CCA Galleries and Coriander, Webb was able to stay true to the collaged, hand-made approach by cutting and pasting the prints, and also incorporating gold and silver leaf, mirrored papers, diamond dust and glazes. His intention was to “reinvent the original works as high quality, multi-layered silkscreened collages; refining and embellishing the ideas behind the pieces during the process”. Each collage explores ideas of loss, romance, and nostalgia by removing the male protagonist from view; in the case of ‘Absent Minded’, the viewer is left to fill in the void with a simple cut out treatment applied to the missing figure.
