‘Tesco Local’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary artist Lucy Bryant. Printed onto 300gsm Somerset Cotton Rag Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 50 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Lucy Bryant is a contemporary artist and graphic designer, whose work is influenced by Pop art and the Punk music scene. Responding to contemporary culture, Bryant’s art subverts the everyday and the banal, always striving to disrupt the ordinary and create something entirely new.
Her recent series appropriates the classic, antiquated landscape painting: steering away from the iconic work of the masters, Bryant favours the unloved and the unknown, those over-worked pastiches of a Turner or a Constable, that fill the tables of junk shops. Onto these, Bryant has added anachronistic motifs to create a jarring and unexpected end result.
‘Tesco Local’ depicts a sleepy 1800s village, complete with cobbled paths, cottages…oh, and a Tesco Local, a recent addition to solve all of those hard ships of country life like, ‘we’re almost out of quinoa!’ or, ‘have we bought The Guardian today?’.
