Black Mirror

by Stephen Graham

DIMENSIONS: (framed) 13.5 x 17.75 ins / 34 x 45 cms
SIGNATURE: Signed
MEDIUM: SWAROVSKI® crystal

 

Graham’s sole use of black crystal to depict a skull in Black Mirror, 2017, is a unique twist on his reference to POP culture. An image that everyone is familiar with, the use of material elevates the skull’s status from morbid to playful. The precision required to create the illusion of the eye sockets and cheekbones is evident, and enhances the simplistic beauty of the composition.

Provenance: Direct from the artists studio

Stephen Graham is a South African-born artist who graduated from the prestigious and world-renowned Central Saint Martins in London. Stephen is best known for his integrate Pin Art creations which use office pins and SWAROVSKI®Crystals together to form iconic objects, logos and symbols.

Stephen has always been intrigued by negative space and how this translates into interesting compositions and uses this theatrical platform to intricately construct and create three-dimensional artworks with his precision “pin” technique. Stephen has a unique ability to transform a hard edge pin and iconic image into something which takes on a life of its own using SWAROVSKI® Crystals as a colour pallet.

With a background in Theatre Design, Stephen combines his love of theatre, film and design to create works that are both intricately beautiful and poignantly provocative. The visual impact of each artwork, combined with the subtle criticism of our mass consumer culture, nostalgia and social structures, makes for a fascinating collection that entices not only the eye, but also the mind.
