New School Prints 2019 (Banner, Blake, Upritchard, Wentworth)

School Prints revives a groundbreaking scheme set up in the 1940s to supply original, high-quality contemporary art to primary schools. Last year, six British artists – Martin Creed, Jeremy Deller, Anthea Hamilton, Helen Marten, Haroon Mirza and Rose Wylie – were invited to create limited edition prints that were gifted to participating Wakefield schools.

Sir Peter Blake - Games We Used To Play, Things We Used To Do - 2019

Sir Peter Blake - Games We Used To Play, Things We Used To Do - 2019I thought about what was different between when I was at school and schools today, and I remembered the games we used to play in the playground. I hope my print will make children smile and that they become involved in working out the different games, maybe asking their mum and dad about them.’ - Sir Peter Blake

Francis Upritchard - Surly Baboon - 2019

Francis Upritchard - Surly Baboon - 2019"Monkeys and Baboons are interesting to me because they look and behave a lot like humans, but are not human. The baboon in this print has a facial expression a little bit like my husband’s when he is in a fake bad mood. I guess a Baboon in a bad mood might have a similar expression, so I’m not sure if this is really a portrait of my husband, or of a Baboon." - Francis Upritchard

Richard Wentworth - Weights and Measures - 2019

Richard Wentworth - Weights and Measures - 2019‘I  only photograph ‘things’, and I only photograph what I encounter. I don’t go hunting. I am not a snooper. Looking and seeing often overlap. If we ‘see’ something, is that an ‘image’? When does imagination enter our internal conversation? How do we share? Who do we want to keep out? I am very interested in the narrow line between public and private. The links and the leaves here are in a mad conversation. Human relationships are often quite like this image – in a state of variable mutual accommodation.’ - Richard Wentworth
