‘Boys of Summer’ is a 12 colour Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Richard Denne. Printed onto Somerset Tub Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 25 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Bright based artist Richard Denne describes himself not as a painter, but as an architect. Building his brightly coloured, and often geometrically sensitive artworks from a blend of traditional and digital techniques, paint and printmaking processes, merging the figurative with the abstract, Denne's sexually attuned pieces are truly unique and breathtakingly beautiful.
‘Boys of Summer’ uses a mash-up of patterns and colours, shapes and styles, to create a dreamy vista, where the titular boys bathe in crystal clear waters, surrounded by tall palm trees, and rolling green lawns. Cherry-red sits against grass-green and sky-blue for a bold palette with strong visual impact, capturing the hazy heat of a summer’s evening with stunning artistic clarity.
