‘Teenage Phantasm #102 (Verdigris)’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Lucas Price. Printed using hand-finished archival pigment print with screen painted background and gloss varnish on with gloss varnish on 330gsm Somerset Satin Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 80 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Lucas Price blends the traditional and the modern, merging contemporary photorealism with Baroque styles and religious iconography. His work centres around the still life, exploring the possibilities of a single snapshot, within which is contained both beauty and decay, chaos and harmony, abstraction and figuration.
‘Teenage Phantasm #102 (Verdigris)’ depicts the portrait of a woman, painted to resemble a Baroque icon. Shrouded in black and clutching a white rose in her hands, the woman's heavily made up eyes are downcast, while scratchy, black and silver stars surround her face.
Against a rough, teal painted background, ‘Teenage Phantasm #102 (Verdigris)’ is a brilliant blend of antiquated and contemporary styles, for a truly beautiful aesthetic.
