About this Item

Colour lithograph. Number 2 from an edition of 4. Signed by the artist in pencil, lower right. Very good condition. A lively early print by the progressive contemporary British artist David Ferry. A printmaker and photomontage specialist who has lectured and exhibited his works worldwide, David Ferry was born in Blackpool in 1957. After studying at the Blackpool College of Technology, he trained at the prestigious Camberwell School of Art and Crafts and the Slade School of Fine Art in London. His first solo exhibition was held at the 1984 International Contemporary Art Fair at London's Barbican Centre, and he made his first significant U.S. debut in 2000 as a visiting professor at Southampton College, New York with an exhibition entitled David Ferry from the window seat at the Avram Gallery. In addition to his many lithographs and photomontages, Ferry's oeuvre includes numerous artist books, some of which featured in the 1999 touring exhibition and catalogue Aspects of Our National Heritage. His abstract works frequently have a satirical edge, and the influence of his self-professed fascination with the surreal and the comical is particularly evident in those images representing his subjective interpretation of particular places and historical events. In 2002, he was awarded an important grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. His work can be found at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Scottish Museum of Modern Art; the Art Institute, Chicago; the Art Museum of Estonia; and in many corporate and university collections. He has had recent solo exhibitions in Berlin, Brighton, London, New York, Seoul and Poznan. Bookseller Inventory # 12425
