‘Dazzle Disc’ is a striking Limited Edition Print by acclaimed pop Artist, Sir Peter Blake.
This piece of art is a signed limited edition silkscreen print with glazes and comes from an edition of 100.
‘Dazzle Disc’ references Sir Peter Blake’s early work as well as his recent exploration of the ‘dazzle’ effect. This was originally a method of helping vessels avoid enemy detection in World War One.
In 2015 Peter Blake was commissioned to ‘dazzle’ a Mersey Ferry, the result was ‘Everybody Razzle Dazzle’ and the print it inspired ‘Dazzle’. The choice of a circular format for this new work has multiple resonances; the most obvious being that of a vinyl record, but also a badge, a film reel, a rose window.
His choice of the word ‘disc’ is certainly suggestive of the influence music and musicians have had throughout his career. The composition was originally created as a stained glass window for installation at Worton Hall Studios (the printmaking centre in London where Blake has his own studio space).
