‘Super Highway’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Joe Webb. Printed onto 330gsm Naturalis Matt Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 75 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
The work of contemporary artist Joe Webb sees a return to ‘analogue methods’ in beautifully retro style. Opting for painstakingly crafted collage techniques, Webb’s work is reminiscent of early Paolozzi, layering together found images and photographs from vintage magazines, to create surreal and often esoteric prints. ‘Super Highway’ depicts a 1950s illustration of the Milky Way, as swirls of blue stars fill the endless, inky-black space. In the foreground, Webb has collaged the grainy image of a young couple in a 1950s, open-top Cadillac, speeding down the super highway and into the starry sky. Brilliantly imaginative and beautifully executed, Webb’s piece is a gem of contemporary Pop printing.
