BEHIND THE ARTWORK
Six years on from ourCultural Debrisexhibition, we are excited to welcome back London artist Adam Koukoudakis for the release of a special edition screenprint including this gold leaf variation. We are very happy to be reunited with Adam's evolving studio practice, and to bring our collectors another opportunity to own his work.
The imagery for the edition is inspired by a sculptural object that Koukoudakis made in his studio in the early 2000s, in which he tied two graphite pencils together with string and sealed them with wax. Retaining his signature pixellated aesthetic, the artwork strongly references religious iconography whilst also evoking craftsmanship. Adam connects this melding of meaning with a sense of devotion that he feels towards his practice.
"I may not be able to associate or identify with the loaded symbolism that is attached to this image, as I’m not a religious person. But I can relate to the sense of worship and dedication I feel towards my art and craft."
- Adam Koukoudakis
