Jealous Needs You and 30X30 at the Saatchi Gallery

JEALOUS NEEDS YOU

I was recently invited to take part in the annual JNY project, in which 30 artists each released a print which was printed by Jealous Gallery. Each was an edition of 36, and mine was a three-layer screen print of one of my most popular works to date, Ophelia. The original was inspired by the character of the same name from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and is an A4 black electrical tape painting on glass, which I then encased in resin and framed. It was shown at my fifth solo show Lavish Entropy with Delphian Gallery in July.

I absolutely LOVE how they printed these, with a subtle grey layer to delineate the shadows under where the tape is on the original, and a gloss white layer on the flowers. I was very happy to have been invited to take part in this project again, as I had such great feedback about my print from the project a few years ago.

SAATCHI GALLERY

After shows in both Jealous galleries, these prints went on to be exhibited for a whole month at The Saatchi Gallery, in their Prints & Originals room. It was incredible to show at the Saatchi again, as it’s one of my favourite London Galleries. They also shared my piece on their Instagram account and in their mailinglist, which was flattering.

PRINTS

I have held back a batch of these prints and will be making them available for sale just before Christmas. Email info@benjaminmurphy.info to add yourself to the waiting list if you would like one.

 

Big thanks to Dario, Louise, Nick, as well as Paul at The Saatchi for making this happen again.

My second exhibition of the year at The Saatchi Gallery was the Cash Is King show, in which all of the artists drew on to existing currency. the show finished at the end of September, and I will be back there for another show in early December.

My last show was as part of Jealous Needs You, which was the one directly before this one.

The original piece has sold, and it is the piece that I still get the most enquiries about. For this reason, I’m expecting the print to be popular, and will be holding a few back for release later on in the year.

I have a few available for purchase, which can be found [HERE]

Saatchi/ Hemyca Collaboration for LFW

vanitas drawingI’m excited to be collaborating with M&C Saatchi and Hemyca for London Fashion Week this September. We will be creating an installation in the M&C Saatchi offices in Soho for the models to walk on, which will involve me doing some tape art on the floor.

The above drawing is a sketchbook page that I did recently, and isn’t really related to this post but I thought it was nice so here it is.

Also I found a few APs of previously sold out prints and have added them to my shop, link above.
