‘For Ferguson, With Love’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Lucas Price. Printed onto 330gsm Somerset Satin Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 15 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.
‘For Ferguson, With Love’ depicts a chromium fire extinguisher, emblazoned with the word ‘savages’. As the camera flash bounces off the metal surface of the device, we are reminded of the breathtaking skill of Price’s photorealist technique, and his ability to capture the mundane and the everyday with astonishing artistic sensitivity.
