COVERS TO THE EVERYDAY
July - August 2020
A series of original linocut prints by local artist, Paul Anderson, inspired by the iconic LIFE magazine cover.
“What if we could, with the precious time afforded to us, take that second glimpse at an everyday object and reinterpret it as a thing of value and beauty - something to even celebrate?
From this premise, I'm moving from the sensational to the colourful in a way that today's magazine rarely does. Under the masthead of the now defunct LIFE magazine I am taking from the past, through the bold, direct and vivid technique of lino cutting, to provide an alternative to the visual stresses of being pulled in many directions by today's media. It is my intention to enhance life by bringing a sense of colour, fun, imagination, plus a unique insight into my own self-expression.”
Paul is a visual artist living and working in Tower Hamlets
