Angus Fairhurst: Unprinted

July 29, 2014 by Kay

Until 30 August 2014
Paul Stolper

Unprinted by Angus Fairhurst (1966–2008) is a comprehensive overview of his printed works from 1992 to 2006, including silkscreens and etchings. The earliest works in the show, ‘When I Woke up in the Morning the Feeling Was Still There’ (1992, from The London Portfolio, Paragon Press), and ‘When I Woke up in the Morning the Feeling Was Still There’ (1997), are silkscreen prints taken from an initial photograph; the first an individual print, the latter made up of four prints. Each print depicts a single figure – the same man who appeared in the seminal work ‘Man With Dream Colours’ (1992) – standing in an artist’s studio and holding a blank white canvas. A square of colour has been printed on top of each canvas, but deliberately misaligned with its borders. 'I wanted to play on the misalignment of the hard form and the notion of feeling, both physical and emotional, which is something you cannot be so sure about' (Angus Fairhurst, Contemporary British Art in Print, 1995). The square is yellow in the earlier print; while the later set encompasses green, red, yellow and blue versions. The space we most associate with colour and light, the studio, has been stripped of all those characteristics. It is inhabited by a solitary area of colour that seems not to be really part of the work, but rather super-imposed on to it. The title, prominently printed below the image, perhaps alludes to love, loss, despair, or hope, with the colours somehow standing in for all of those emotions.
