‘Economy of Sale (Two)’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Lucas Price. Printed using archival pigment print with gloss varnish on 330gsm Somerset Satin Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 40 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Lucas Price blends the traditional and the modern, merging contemporary photorealism with Baroque styles and religious iconography. His work centres around the still life, exploring the possibilities of a single snapshot, within which is contained both beauty and decay, chaos and harmony, abstraction and figuration.
‘Economy of Sale (Two)’ depicts a human skull, posed against an ornate, rococo-style wallpaper, while resting on a red patterned surface and surrounded by effervescent roses. Perched upon the skull’s head, Price has painted a Supreme cap for a brilliant blend of old and new, questioning the role of the art institution in today’s capitalist driven culture, while creating a truly beautiful aesthetic.
