Studio manager Adam Bridgland collaborated with artist Lee Johnson to create a series of fly posted works for the a site specific installation at Kettle's Yard, Cambridge.

Working in collaboration with artist Lee Johnson, the pair created a series of screen printed fly posters in the Jealous Print Studio to adorn the hoardings of Kettle's Yard, Cambridge as the famous gallery undergoes a major refurbishment before reopening in 2017. 

The phrase Art is Language is repeated in acid colours over black & white background images. The images are close-up photographs of paintings of speech bubbles direct from the artist’s studio. Dribbles of oil paint evoke abstract expressionism, which are then contrasted by spray paint, which is associated more often with graffiti and street art.

In a unique handmade alphabet, the phrase Art is Language is scrawled across the background image, and beneath it–in the same handmade alphabet–is an anagram, one of three: Guitar as Angel; Gestural Again; Gargantua Lies.  Each anagram relates to the creative disciplines of music, literature, poetry and art.

The message of Art is Language is simple: art is everywhere, and is a language just as common as the language that we read and speak daily; we just need to learn how to read it.
