Jealous were delighted to continue their working relationship with the ICA last month, producing a new edition for Australian artist Helen Johnson.
The print entitled Argument, 2017 is a digital archival print with emboss and
gold metallic and nylobag silkscreen overlays. The edition marked an exciting development for the studio, with the large scale relief printer
being used for the first time to create a bespoke emboss on to surface around the faces on the print. The work was commissioned and launched
to coincide with Helen's solo exhibition Warm Ties.
Argument is almost a printed simulacra of Johnson’s painterly style. Depicting two people deep in conversation, or
arguing, the edition follows Johnson’s socio-political interest Australian identity politics. Helen Johnson is an artist based in Melbourne. Recent solo exhibitions include Barron Field as part of the 2016 Glasgow International, Slow Learners at Château Shatto, Los Angeles, 2015 and Cafe Fatigue at Sutton Gallery, Melbourne, 2015.
Rokesly Art Week x Jealous x Ben Eine
Jealous were thrilled to be invited back to Rokesly Junior School for our annual Art Week Project with the kids of Year 4.
With previous projects including a protest in the school playground, a giant jigsaw and finally collaborating with Ai Wei Wei.
So who better to call in for our 2018 project, than our long-time collaborator and friend, Mr Ben Eine.
For this project, we created a 1 colour screenprint in Eine’s iconic Circus font which read ‘Imagination’. We then armed the kids with every colour of Sharpie to collaborate with Eine to add handfinished colour.
And best of all? We got to have our annual school dinner! Huge thanks to all the kids and staff at Rokesly for a brilliant day!
