‘Ardenter into the Light’ is a Screen Print by contemporary artist Simon Freeborough. Printed onto 410gsm Somerset Satin Paper, and finished with diamond dust, the print is from a limited edition of 3 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Simon Freeborough’s work explores the disposable trimmings of contemporary, capitalist-driven society, transforming them into lasting objects of visual admiration while always questioning the fine line between artistic practice and consumer branding.
‘Ardenter into the Light’ depicts an Oreo cookie, presented in shades of deep, charcoal grey, and washed with patches of black shadow and diamond dust, to create a striking visual symbol, powerfully transcending the humble biscuit with its dazzling texture.
A thoughtful comment on our fraught relationship with consumerism, Freeborough opens out the question of where creativity fits in our money-oriented culture, in this compelling limited edition print.
