Fish slice by Linda Darty, 2004
The artist, Linda Darty, describes her work as ‘an exploration of form and surface, incorporating my love of colour and graphic imagery’.
Inspired by the natural landscapes of Florida and North Carolina, Darty primarily works in silver. She uses etching and enamelling metalwork techniques to create textured and layered finishes that are richly coloured. Darty also says that ‘it is important to me that the pieces I make function in a useful way, adding beauty to everyday rituals, or ceremony to special occasions. My work celebrates my memories.’
The OSPAAAL posters in particular reveal the idealistic spirit at the core of the Cuban Revolution, intent on eradicating imperialism globally.
This is a screen printed poster depicting a stylised monkey, with orange hair and a blue face and hands, against a black background.
