‘Laughing Matters’ is a Giclée Print by graphic artist Lene Bladbjerg. From a limited edition of 100, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Danish artist Lene Bladbjerg creates prints of striking graphic quality. Crossing the line from graphic design to fine art, Bladbjerg’s work is infused with a gently haunting character, as bold type and strong composition dominate the frame.
‘Laughing Matters’ exposes Bladbjerg’s brilliant way with word play: punning on the notion of a laughing matter, Bladbjerg subtly twists the phrase to remind us of the importance of a simple laugh. The page is filled with the word ‘ha’, running all the way across from top to bottom in grey cursive script, so that the print itself seems to shake with laughter. Using the same type, Bladbjerg has overlaid the titular words in large electric blue lettering. Visually striking and full of character, Bladbjerg’s print revels in the power of the word, affirming one of our most basic but delightful human traits: its true, laughing matters.
