John Squire — Disinformation - Print
765mm x 550mm Edition of 35 Signed Published by Other Criteria Price: £900
This limited-edition, signed print is produced on the occasion of a display of a new series of works by John Squire at Newport Street Gallery, entitled ‘Disinformation’ (11 September to 10 November 2019). The large-scale paintings on show are based on photographs taken by the artist or found online. Squire alters the images using editing software, which he overloads to prompt visual glitches. These partially distorted, fragmented scenes are then enlarged from their original small screen format and rendered in the traditional medium of oil and canvas. The figures blend, blur and collide with their surroundings, their features confused and sometimes entirely lost.
