Edition of 50 works, signed and numbered version
About the work
n his signature poster works, Titchner uses a distinctive font to animate found texts sourced from a range of 'inspirational' writings which define systems of belief - from political slogans to corporate brochures- music lyrics to philosophical treatises. He uses punchy graphics with shimmering colours to bring the avant garde manifesto into the same cultural and aesthetic space as the advertising slogan, thereby making ideology abstract.
This limited edition was produced 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. It was recently acquired by the British Council Collection.
