Other Criteria launch ‘I Am In The Detail’: a new print portfolio inspired by classic Penguin Play covers, by writer and artist Harland Miller
Following a successive run of print collaborations, this new portfolio edition with Harland Miller consists of three silkscreen prints hand finished with gold leaf: 'On Me Not In Me', 'Health and Safety is Killing Bondage' and 'There's No Business Like No Business'. The works are available individually or as a portfolio in a specially designed portfolio titled ‘I Am In The Detail.’
Continuing from his renowned series of works based of the dust jackets of Penguin books, Miller combines the style inherent in the Penguin plays and finds a way to marry aspects of Pop Art, abstraction and figurative painting at once, with his writer’s love of text. The ensuing images are humorous, sardonic and nostalgic at the same time, while the painting style hints at the dog-eared, scuffed covers of Penguin books themselves, giving the feeling of familiarity assonated with a loved book.
