‘Ice Cream Sprinkles’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Carl Moore. Printed onto Hahnemuhle Fine Art paper, the print is hand embellished with acrylic, metallic paints. Form a limited edition of 50, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Digital artist Carl Moore produces an aesthetic like no other: revelling in the uncanny, Moore’s prints are an exercise in contemporary surreality, achieved to extraordinary success. Merging the playful with the tragic, the absurd with the endearing, Moore produces highly graphic images, bold in their colour and compositional technique.
‘Ice Cream Sprinkles’ is no exception: against a highly saturated, turquoise coloured background, a classic ’99 ice cream dominates the frame, complete with flake and colourful sprinkles. Moore has allowed the cone to melt - sandy-coloured paint drips running down the print - while the sweet, frozen treat stays in tact, confounding all of our ice cream expectations.
Strange and surreal, while aesthetically powerful, ‘Ice Cream Sprinkles’ is a compelling piece of contemporary print-work.
