Lyndsey Ingram presents a focused group show of British Pop prints. Artists include Joe Tilson, Patrick Caulfield, Richard Hamilton, David Hockney and Gerald Laing.
Highlights of the stand include Joe Tilson’s New York Decals (1967). The artist returned from a visit to New York with paper ephemera and proceeded to immortalise these graphic fragments as prints. Embracing the new technology of the commercial graphic world, he made complex photographic transfers to create giant replicas of the fragments. It is a collage that blurs the distinction between two- and three-dimensional space.
Other highlights include David Hockney’s Alka Seltzer (1961), one of his earliest prints and one that directly references a mass-produced consumer product. In addition, Lyndsey Ingram will present Richard Hamilton’s People (1968), an extremely rare photographic print, retouched by hand, and his iconic Release (1972) showing Mick Jagger and the art dealer Robert Fraser handcuffed in the back of a London cab, an image derived from a famous newspaper photograph.
