‘Defence of the Inanimate - Bed Pan (Shit Happens)’ is a Giclée print by iconic artist Anthony ‘H’ Haylock. Printed onto 300gsm Somerset Photo Satin paper, the print is from a limited edition of 50 and is signed by the artist.
Antony ‘H’ Haylock knows how to have a little fun with art. His work centres around iconic, inanimate objects which, as he says, contain “the power to evoke an emotion, a memory, a visual time stamp.” H’s prints artfully blend high-impact compositional technique with tongue-in-cheek wit to produce an appealing aesthetic. The ‘Defence of the Inanimate’ series deftly showcases H’s artistic approach, blending pop-art themes and styles with fine art skills and a penchant for word play.
For ‘Defence of the Inanimate - Bed Pan (Shit Happens)’ H has produced an image of a blue enamel bed-pan, chipped and ageing against an off-white background, and surrounded by specks and drips of paint. Juxtaposed against the pan’s chic aesthetic, H has scrawled the words ‘Shit Happens!’ across the front, in dark blue paint strokes. Bold, brash and fun, the piece is beautifully executed to maximum impact.
