As a conceptual artist, Michael Craig-Martin examines ordinary objects and considers the possibility of how these forms might be perceived. His paintings often utilise a minimal style, with bold outlines filled with areas of bright colour. Craig-Martin was a teacher at London’s Goldsmiths College during the 1980s, and he tutored and significantly influenced many of the YBA (Young British Artist) generation, including Damien Hirst and Sarah Lucas.
Here in this artwork Lighthouse, the artist wishes to reveal how ordinary everyday objects have their own impressive architecture, with fascinating complexity. The moving lines of the screw seem to spin infinitely and play with our sense of understanding as they both rise and fall simultaneously. Working directly with the artist, Sedition brings you this exclusive limited edition.
