Huma Bhabha – Whitechapel edition

Huma Bhabha - Untitled - 2017

Huma Bhabha - Untitled - 2017On the occasion of Eduardo Paolozzi, 16 February - 14 May 2017, at the Whitechapel Gallery, Huma Bhabha has created a new etching edition in homage to the artist.

In her works on paper, Bhabha creates atmospheric images, often figurative, blending animal and human features. Huma Bhabha’s edition for the Whitechapel Gallery derives from a photographic collage. An image of a tree in the landscape is combined with a donkey-like totem, recalling her sculptural assemblages, which often incorporate the use of tribal masks. Layering the rich dark tones of the photogravure and emerald green of the spit bit e etching to produce a vibrant enchanting effect, this print undermines the documentary tradition with a darker, personal and fantastical dimension.

Medium: Photogravure and spit bite etching.
Size: 43 x 35.5 cm.
Edition of 20
Signed and numbered
Price: £850 (Members Price: £765)

This limited edition Huma Bhabha print is available at Whitechapel Gallery
