‘Sitting Pretty’ is a Screen Print by contemporary artist Hutch. Printed onto 280gsm textured Somerset paper and finished with spray paint details, the piece is from a limited edition of 10 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist Hutch works at the forefront of stencil and screen printing processes to produce and striking and memorable aesthetic. Drawing on erotica, 1950s nostalgia, music and urban street art, Hutch’s work crosses from “sinister to erotic, sometimes overlapping, with a bit of tongue-in-cheek” as he defines it. Provocative and seductive, mixing a skill for stencilling with an extraordinary eye for tonal harmony, Hutch’s work is amongst some of the most desirable on the contemporary print market.
‘Sitting Pretty’ depicts a scantily clad woman, perched on top of a skull and looking seductively towards the viewer. Using a soft palette of ice blue and dusty, rose pink, Hutch creates a striking balance between light and shade, contrasting soft colour with hard lines of ink. Smatterings of textured spray paint give the illusion of lightly falling snow - subtly perfect for Christmas but aesthetically beautiful for the rest of the year.
