‘Coming Together/Broken Apart’ is a Screen Print collaboration by contemporary artists Copyright and Gemma Compton. Printed onto Archival Fine Art paper with a deckled edge, the piece is from a limited edition of 100 and is signed and numbered by the artists.
Acclaimed contemporary artists Copyright and Gemma Compton have teamed up to create ‘Coming Together/Broken Apart’, a stunning print, rich with depth, texture, colour and style.
Each artist brings their own, distinctive aesthetic to bear on the piece, but the parallels between the two are striking: Copyright’s colourful swallow soars across the red, Oriental-style section, while Compton’s half of the heart, in cool blues and ice-whites, depicts a death’s-head hawkmoth beside her own, fluttering swallow. It’s a glass-half-empty type concept, as the shattered heart presents both splice and split, united by themes (swallows, flowers, touches of gold) while torn apart by stylistic rifts.
The piece has been lovingly hand-finished with gold leaf.
