About the work
This limited edition was produced by Jaime Gili in response to Richard Hamilton's seminal poster Just What Is It That Makes Today's Homes So Different, So Appealing, which was first shown at the Whitechapel Gallery in the 1956 exhibition, This is Tomorrow. Gili's current interest lies in working with architects and landscape artists in a cross media partnership reminiscent of the collaborations between artists, designers and architects that characterised This is Tomorrow. The swirling forms of this edition are based on the landscape designs of Burle Marx, the influential 1960s Brazilian landscape artist whose ideas were abstracted from the forms and colours found in nature.
About the artist
Born in Venezuela in 1972, Gili employs signature modernist forms in often large-scale mural sized paintings which reference utopian historical modern movements, particularly in Latin America during the 1950s and 1960s.
Gili has shown with Jerwood Space, London; Bloomberg SPACE, London; the ICA, London and the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.His work is held by Saatchi Gallery; the University of Essex Collection of Latin-American Art and Christie's Contemporary, London.
