SOPHIE SMALLHORN | 'COLOUR WHEEL 6'

February 8th 2015
With a more masculine palette, Colour Wheel 6 pairs beautifully with its predecessor Colour Wheel 5, our first edition by Sophie Smallhorn, released last year. Angie talks more about the work below.

If you love colour then there’s a good chance you’ll be a fan of Sophie Smallhorn’s work. A colour obsessive, when creating any of her pieces each shade has to be just right in order for it to react perfectly to its surrounding hues.

For her new Eyestorm edition, ‘Colour Wheel 6’, as with ‘Colour Wheel 5’ that came before it, each and every colour was mixed by Sophie herself in her studio before she even stepped foot in the printers. Arriving at Jealous print studio with 14 clearly labeled pots of paint and a corresponding chart showing where each one should go, she hands them over to printer Matthew for him to work his magic. He then makes up the screens and places each colour separately on the paper, doing every other one first, then after they’re dry, the other 12 that fit in between, mostly printing by hand with mini ‘squeegees’ to get them lined up so precisely they form the continuous circle that’s an essential part of the piece.

A lot of Sophie’s work has been in series’, and this is the sixth of her Colour Wheel prints, with the first released in 2001. Best known for her public projects - she’s the artist behind the impressive colour-changing wrap that surrounded the London 2012 Olympic Stadium - her work on paper very much echoes her three dimensional pieces in that the images are clean, graphic and have solid shape and form.

With its shades of blues, greens, greys and browns, Colour Wheel 6 is the ideal masculine pair to the more feminine Colour Wheel 5 which saw varying shades of yellow giving a lighter and slightly softer feel. Despite this, Colour Wheel 6 still has its fair share of pinks and reds, and the bright coral that jumps out from the top right hand part of the circular form has been placed to intentionally echo the striking pink that appears in the same position in Colour Wheel 5, distinctly bringing the two works together when they’re viewed side by side.

Colour Wheel 6 is an edition of just 45 and is available to buy online from today. We’ll be exhibiting it at art fairs in London, New York, Toronto and Hong Kong between March and June.

RECENT NEWS ARTICLES

With their tender expressions, intimate compositions, and delicate colour palettes, Lucie Bennett’s recent works saw the artist take a somewhat new direction with her depictions of women - no longer vivacious and dominating, but instead subtle, thoughtful, and dreamlike - caught in their own private moment. Eyestorm is now excited to present three new paintings by Bennett - Rose, Amandine and Coralie, which continue on from this approach, using her meticulous and minimalist drawing technique to represent beautiful female figures that exude mystery, and invite us to delve into their world.

Best known for his metal sculptures of balloon dogs and everyday objects, Jeff Koons takes industrially-made articles, strips them of their practical use and re-presents them as art icons. He plays with themes of banality, mass-appeal and commerce with arguably greater showmanship, and on a grander scale, than any artist before him.

DO YOU OWN A DAMIEN HIRST PRINT EDITION YOU WISH TO SELL?
Valium
With two major exhibitions during the Venice Biennale, 2017 was a year which increased the awareness of Damien Hirst. With Hirst still actively releasing new print editions, many collectors focus on his earlier work from 2000 and before, such as Valium, Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD), Opium, Beautiful, Galactic, Exploding Screenprint (Spin) and Painting-by-Numbers.

If you have one of the above prints that you are potentially interested in selling, please do get in touch with us via the Contact page, which you can find here.
