Michael Craig-Martin's Alphabet

January 17, 2013 by Kay

12 January - 10 February 2013

The Gallery, Winchester Discovery Centre

Michael Craig-Martin is one of the most influential British artists of recent decades. He was a key figure for the YBA generation of artists, whom he taught in his capacity as tutor at Goldsmiths College of Art.

The Hayward Gallery’s touring exhibition Alphabet is a series of 26 screenprints by Craig-Martin in which the letters of the alphabet are overlaid with everyday objects, set against a background of vivid monochrome colours.

Created in his signature style, Craig-Martin plays with the idea of the ABC children’s primer. Instead of a direct 'A is for Apple', 'B is for Ball', the relationship between the letter and image depicted is not instantly obvious and requires some guesswork.
