Shane Xu's Wish List

Shane Xu

We sat down to chat with our Modern & Contemporary Prints specialist Shane Xu to find out which pieces of art from the ARTSY + ROSEBERYS : Urban & Contemporary Art auction she wishes were hanging up one her own wall. 
The sale begins today, Friday 14 February at 3.30 pm and ends Friday 28 February at 3.00 pm. Bidding exclusively via Artsy.

 

  1. Lot 1 : Banksy, Sale Ends (V.2), 2017; screenprint in colours on wove

    Banky
    Banksy, British b.1974- Sale Ends (V.2), 2017; screenprint in colours on wove, signed and numbered from the edition of 500 in pencil, published by Pictures on Walls, London, with their blindstamp, sheet 56 x 76cm (unframed) (ARR) Note: This work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity issued by Pest Control.

    I really admire Banksy’s art. The artist always has the intellect to fuse politics, history and art together, which in turn generates a buzz around the world every time he produces new work. This print is no exception depicting a group of cloaked figures typically seen at the foot of a crucifixion in Renaissance paintings. In the place of the crucifixion is a large red sign reading, Sale Ends. This was first created in 2006 for Banksy’s iconic American show ‘Barely Legal’, which took place in a warehouse in Los Angeles in September 2006. Sale Ends has the artist’s usual satirical humour and is a noticeable analysis of our materialistic society today.
  2. Lot 91 : Mark Titchner, British b.1973- And If It Was, It Can't Be Is, 2012; giclee print in colours on Somerset Satin wove

    Mark Titchner
    Mark Titchner, British b.1973- And If It Was, It Can't Be Is, 2012; giclee print in colours on Somerset Satin wove, signed, dated and numbered 23/40 in pencil, sheet 31.3 x 31.6cm (unframed) (ARR)

    My second favourite print is from the British artist who in 2006 was a nominee for the Turner Prize. Titchner’s work focuses on the exploration of words and language, working across a number of different medias including digital print. His work incorporates references from both a contemporary and historical, secular and spiritual notions of faith. This piece in particular is a great example of his work using text. Titchner’s work has been acquired by museums and private collections throughout the world, including the Tate Modern. 
  3. Lot 26 : JR, French b.1983- Self-Portrait in a Woman's Eye, Kenya, 2010; giclee print on Magnani wove

    JR
    JR, French b.1983- Self-Portrait in a Woman's Eye, Kenya, 2010; giclee print on Magnani wove, signed, dated and numbered 111/150 in pencil, with artist's stamp, from the project 28 Millimetres: Women are Heroes, published by Circle Culture Gallery, Berlin, sheet 92 x 70cm (unframed) (ARR)

    The third item on my wish list is a self-portrait of the mysterious French artist, JR. Women Are Heroes was the third phase of the 28 Millimetres series which took the artist to the slums of Kibera, Kenya, where he covered 2,000m² of rooftops with blown-up photographs of the women who lived there. This image is a brilliant use of a subject to capture an image of himself.
