‘And What?’ is an Archival Inkjet Print by contemporary artist Ceal Warrants. Printed onto 330gsm Somerset Satin Enhanced Paper, the piece is from a limited edition of 25 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist Ceal Warrants depicts life’s darker side, through images of childish innocence and naivety. An uneasy blend, Warrants’ work questions the saccharine nostalgia of childhood remembrances, to create a thought-provoking and visually powerful aesthetic.
‘And What?’ employs powerful colour and compositional technique to extraordinary success: against a sunshine yellow background, a young girl hovers at the corner of the print, her choppy pink hair clashing beautifully against the dominating, bold yellow. Her face seems to express the title question, and Warrants has managed to capture - in her distinctive, illustrative style - both a childish frustration and an altogether adult anger, in that single, simple glance. Fun and filled with charm, ‘And What?’ is a compelling a piece of contemporary print work.
