Mat Collishaw, GASCONADES (Beastmode), Limited Edition Print
This limited edition GASCONADES print is one of a series of seven, which were produced on the occasion of The Centrifugal Soul at Castle Howard, and later shown in the exhibition Urban Legends at Paul Stolper Gallery, London. Translated literally as ‘extravagant boasting’, each work shows a solitary British garden bird tethered to a perch, which references the seventeenth-century fashion for commissioning portraits of prized pets. In the background we see a vibrant, graffiti-tagged wall, which provides contemporary parallels with this mode of aesthetic boasting.
The GASCONADES series consists of seven prints, and each one is for sale individually.
