Joe Webb’s latest release is a slinky and seductive limited edition depicting an anonymous female figure oozing glamour and elegance.
‘Back to Black’ deconstructs the beauty of the female form into disconnected, almost abstracted, body parts, including an enticing long leg and scarlet lips. In characteristic form, Webb’s beauty has a vintage quality and has been adorned with the delicate sparkle of diamond dust on her striking jewels.
Joe Webb has said, “Back To Black is taken from a series of new collages I've recently made. There's a continuous unbroken line throughout the body parts...it's my most minimal work yet, only the flesh of the subject is left which produces an almost abstract shape. These were in part inspired by Henri Matisse's 'Blue Nude' cutouts. I like Matisse's idea of 'painting with scissors' and the way his work became so minimal and concise in his later years. I enjoy referencing other artists work then taking it somewhere else."
‘Back to Black’ is available in two sumptuous silkscreen print editions, one with sparkling black glitter and diamond dust, the other with a sleek gloss finish. Both versions are very small limited editions of 75, and each print has been hand signed and numbered by Joe Webb.
