‘Snail Scream Sprinkles’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Carlm Moore. Printed onto Hahnemuhle Fine Art Paper, the print is form a limited edition of 50 and is signed adn 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 ice cream cone dominates the frame, complete with colourful sprinkles.
Yet, in true surreal fashion, Moore confounds our expectations: a closer look reveals not a deliciously whipped, frozen treat, but the spiralled shell of a snail, dripping as though melting in the heat, while its slimy body pokes out where a flake should be. Not for the squeamish or the faint hearted, ‘Ice Cream Sprinkles’ is a truly compelling piece of contemporary print-work.
