‘Sèvres Grenade’ is a Limited Edition Print by contemporary artist Magnus Gjoen.
This piece uses Archival Pigment inks and is printed onto 308gsm Cotton Rag Paper.
Magnus Gjoen, former designer for Vivienne Westwood, creates images that are full beauty but also thought provoking. His art explores the interaction between power and fragility, juxtaposing the two states for maximum conceptual effect. Magnus Gjoen’s work blends a range of styles, incorporating a street and pop aesthetic into a fine art approach.
Against an ice-white background, ‘Sèvres Grenade’ depicts a perfectly formed hand grenade, crafted from Sèvres porcelain – an eighteenth century porcelain manufacturer, hailing from the French commune of the same name. Greek frieze patterns in blue, white, and gold lend a decadent feel, highlighting the stark contrast between natural beauty and human violence.
