‘Sophie Marceau’ is a Giclée print by Brighton artist Simon Dixon. Printed onto 330gsm Somerset Velvet Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 175 and is embossed and numbered.
Simon Dixon was a Brighton-based artist and print maker, whose fine art pieces centred around icons of the twentieth century. Dixon’s love of pop culture and deep interest in twentieth century history combine in a truly distinctive aesthetic: referencing 1960s Pop Art, his paintings are a big, bold and colourful reworking of the traditional portrait.
‘Sophie Marceau’ depicts the pop-ified portrait of the eponymous French actress, peering intently out of the print and away from the viewer. Using a simple palette of electric-blue, silver-grey and ice-white to create nuanced light and shade, Dixon has artfully captured the intensity of Marceau’s gaze, for an iconic work of contemporary Pop Art.
