Chad Wys’ ceramic American Tapestry series is inventive with using novelty, eye-catching without pandering and at the end of the day his refined conceptualism subsumes the banal historical objects which he appropriates.
Pastoral Rug - A collaboration with American artist Chad Wys for the Classics Revisited Collection. The poetic image of a young boy and his dog is stretched and melted, as if on a piece of parchment from a bygone age.
'Water is not enough...' Stretched Printed Canvas. In this portrait by Himitsuhana a young lady washes at the side of a babbling brook, dressed in luxurious velvets and taffeta, we can see this is no servant girl. Cherubs and landscape are glimpsed in the background. This picture is a modern twist on the traditional pastoral portraits of the 18th century when landed gentry were depicted outside in their pleasure gardens and grottos.
