A signed, limited edition silkscreen on canvas by contemporary figurative artist Simon Claridge.
In his latest collection of limited edition diamond dust silkscreen prints, Simon Claridge has taken iconic images from the hallowed archives of legendary English photographer Terry O’Neill.
“She said to me, “I’m going to get crucified for wearing that bikini in One Million Years BC” so I went to 20th Century Fox, and I said "If you can build me a crucifix, I got this idea for a picture.“… I've no doubt some people will still object to it but its not meant to be sacrilegious, just to sum up someone's attitude.” – Terry O’Neill
Claridge’s silkscreen renderings with diamond dust have been executed thoughtfully, to retain the essence of the original exposures and showcase the style of both artists. Simon has applied diamond dust to give this work an incredible glitter effect, building layer upon layer of colour and shade. Due to the delicacy of this artwork, we recommend collection from your local gallery.
