We are very proud to be exhibiting the vivid, playful and unique work of Fatherless at our central Brighton gallery space.
Fatherless are a collaborative print posse from the midwestern United States. Their dynamic, vibrant works are the result of five individual artists working responsively with each other’s artwork.
A ‘visual mix-tape of shenagination’, they combine their cultural influences in ways that create finished works that are not only unique to their collaboration, but also as individual hand-screened prints no two are the same.
Influences are many and their finished pieces mirror the chaotic and detached state of our current consumer-driven social climate. Imagery from our throw-away culture is re-contextualized to create exciting finished pieces of print.
The name Fatherless derives from the notion that each member, although responsible for bringing individual styles and influences to the table, will work on each and every print made. It’s a process that involves working independently with each other’s images. All prints have been worked on by each of the five members of the print posse.
