We are pleased to announce the sale of the second print of our print sales program, focusing on the work of a small number of mentees from our Artistic Practice Support scheme. The revenue raised from the sale of these artworks will support the artists in question as well as our free mentorship program. This month we are pleased to launch a 260 x 380 mm archival pigment ink print by UK artist William Lakin, in an edition of 5 + 1 AP.
Torso, from the series Five Minutes After Birth, is a response to the social conditioning men experience in modern Western societies. Referencing anti-social behaviour, sexuality and traditional gender roles, this work offers both a critical and reflective response to men’s pursuit of power and control, and their inclination to engage in competitive and often harmful behaviours.
