Anomie- signed limited edition silkscreen print with gold leaf, embossing and glazes by Dan Baldwin.
An Edition of 75
1. Social instability caused by erosion of standards and values.
2. Alienation and purposelessness experienced by a person or a social group as a result of a lack of standards, values or ideals.
‘I wanted to combine elements of two previous prints that I have made; the tone and warmth of Love (2012) and the dynamism of the nuetron-like exploding circle motif inCyclone (2011). This work is contradictory; the happy warm colour draws you in, but the imagery is dark and disconcerting- reflecting the instability and sense of dislocation of the state of anomie. Natural elements v. man made objects, innocence v. corruption, security v. conflict, religion v. pantheism, ornament v. rawness, youth v. decay- I am exploring all of these juxtapositions.’
