‘Antares and Love IV’– A limited edition silkscreen print on paper with matt glaze, collaged elements and mirror-board, by British artist Joe Webb. ‘Antares and Love IV’ can be purchased individually or as a set of four (including ‘Absent Minded’, ‘Antares & Love IV’, ‘Daydream’, and ‘Mono’). Published by CCA Galleries, printed at Coriander Studio.
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 ‘Antares and Love IV’, the day and night sky silhouettes touch on enigmatic and imagined realities which are revealed behind the surface.
