Work 628; Portrait of the Portrait Artist.

Paul Elmsley
Portrait of the Portrait Artist
c. Michael St.Mark 2013

Given the critical furore in art review circles concerning¬† Paul Emsley’s royal portrait, London Dada deem it appropriate that the royal artist be given his own controversial art interpretation for posterity.
( Kate looks on, approvingly… do we detect a veiled smile of secret satisfaction? )

She couldn’t possibly comment.

A4 giclee print on premium Ilford pearl, “scrunched” ( ” scrunch flex portraiture” invented by M.St.M in 2007 ) and employing the gloss surface of the paper to incorporate a unique light sharding effect.
Left part of the print adhered to the frame’s backing panel, the right side raised in relief for further 3D manipulation.
Infinitely flexible portraiture artwork.

Open box framed; 21cms x 30cms
Signed original; £1580
