‘A Romance of Evolution’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary artist Copyright. From a limited edition of 35, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
With a roll-call of artistic influences - from Hitchcock to Shakespeare, Banksy to the Pre-Raphaelites - it’s no surprise that contemporary artist Copyright produces prints of such richness and diversity. With a strong street-art aesthetic, Copyright employs stencils, spray-paint and brush strokes to achieve his culturally attuned works of art.
Commenting on the flawed idealism and unattainable visions of beauty presented in fashion, music and popular culture, Copyright’s images of the female form look back to classicism and myth, producing highly stylised depictions of beautiful women, adorned with flowers, butterflies and angel wings, while maintaining a modern-day edge.
‘A Romance of Evolution’ depicts the profile of a stylistically illustrated woman. Set against a floral blue background, Copyright has left the muse in black and white, adding colour only to her red, backless dress and her tattooed arm, swathed with blossoming roses. To complete the print, Copyright has added delicate, colourful butterflies, to suggest themes of beauty, transience, and ephemerality.
