Back for the second year, our Summer Screen Prints show features some of the world’s best artists matched with some of the best cult films. Working in collaboration with Film4 and Somerset House, we have produced all of the limited edition two-layer prints which are on display at our exhibition at Somerset House from the 31st July to the 20th August 2014.
Each of the 16 artists that we have chosen has taken inspiration from the films on show this season and has re-imagined these beautiful posters.
“I went for A Fistful of Dollars as I am a big fan of all things western and I love the ‘dollars trilogy’. Clint Eastwood has such a great face to draw so I wanted to focus on him as the main image but I wanted it to feel a bit vintage in its delivery, so I took a steer from older film posters and included other characters to give it a dynamic composition. The whole film is a kind of dusty affair so I wanted that to come through in the artwork so I used some textures and finishes to bring this forward. It’s always great to work with Film 4, Somerset house and Print Club, it’s great to have an open brief to interpret the subject in my own way. Thanks for having me!!” – Joe Wilson
