‘Golden Ratio’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Trafford Parsons. Printed onto 300gsm Art Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 100 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Trafford Parsons’ extraordinary and long-spanning career has made its mark on the art world. Avowedly anti-establishment, Parsons work mines popular culture, from B movies to B sides, and brings an energetic street-art aesthetic to the familiar icons that haunt his work.
‘Golden Ratio’ depicts the iconic, Star Wars humanoid, reimagined in the style of Leonard da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. Arms and legs splayed within a network of geometrical shapes, the 15th century figure is brought up to date with the golden image of the cyborg, and Parsons consciously puts the work in dialogue with the writing of 20th century, Russian scientist Isaac Asimov, whose research on robots has influenced his aesthetic.
