Stanley Donwood interview (and new screenprints)

Over at JunkMedia you can read an interview with Stanley Donwood. Stanley talks about the relationship between art and politics. And actually working for the capitalist market.

Stanley: I wasn’t overjoyed at the idea of getting paid by EMI, as I was a very angry anti-capitalist. [...] My work that I call ‘art’ is largely concerned with what could be termed ‘political’ issues. This is the work that I find hard, challenging, difficult, awful, painful, and ultimately, sometimes, rewarding. But I do also feel very drawn to create work that I sincerely hope people will find beautiful. I hope my work for In Rainbows will have some sort of effect in this way.”

Today, Stanley also announced his ‘Gold Series’ of London Views: “The second in what I hope will be a short series of golden prints. After much research I’ve finally figured out how to replicate the gilded, illuminated manuscript images that helped inspire London Views. A negative image of the linocut is ‘hot-foiled’ onto paper, then the positive image is screenprinted onto that. Is very nice”.

The screenprints are available at the SlowlyDonward shop.

  • i like stanley’s work a lot, but for someone who’s so vocally anti-capitalist, he does charge an awful lot for his work.
