Standing Form in Landscape Framed Limited Edition Giclée Print
Signed and numbered Limited Edition Giclée reproduction print (first edition of 20) of Standing Form in Landscape by artist Peter Lely.
The theme of a standing block is often found in Lely’s paintings.
'This is a device which has been used by artists for centuries. Joseph Albers (1888-1976) contains his colours within squares, and Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665) depicts the emotive symbolism of the altar in his painting “The Adoration of the Golden Calf”. In this instance the painting is a re-enactment of intimate discoveries. In my travels, I have deliberately searched for and found sequestered places, places touched with the footprints of a past civilisation. And this could be a dolmen deep in a wood, a spring emerging from a hermit’s cave, or, in more modern times, an abandoned railway viaduct.
When I paint a formal or geometrical block, the form has the effect of distancing itself from its setting to become monumental. In my works, there is a continual need to use this form or its equivalent as a statement of both contrast and stability. It is also a symbol of timelessness and permanence.'
This is a museum-quality age-resistant print on Hahnemühle 100% Cotton Rag.
Brilliant colours, with a texture and clarity which rivals the painting itself.
Presented in a 'Pewter Foil' effect wooden frame.
Handmade in the UK from certified and sustainable wood.
