Three Christines (1 of 3)
by Fionn Wilson :: Contact :: Portfolio
One of a series of three giclee prints (with overpainting) in the style of a situationist poster, based on an original painting by myself of sixties icon Christine Keeler, with quotes from Raoul Vaneigem's 'Revolution of Everyday Life'.
Situationism, a political/artistic movement rooted in the sixties, critiques 21st century capitalism, and proposes that through objectification life is reduced to a 'spectacle' of images which we are ultimately alienated from.
The idea behind the work was to deploy 'détournement' and hijack a dominant image of Christine so that, rather than support the status quo, the image is subverted to put across a more oppositional message.
Giclee print of original painting with overpainting (acrylic) on Hahnemühle Turner 310gsm fine art paper
