Silver Screen Sirens Silk Screen series by Bob Kessel
Jul 23rd, 2016 by admin

SILVER SCREEN SIRENS a new art series by BOB KESSEL
is a set of limited edition original fine art silkscreen prints printed by Axelle Editions in New York City.

The prints are all 34” x 34” inches square on 100% cotton Coventry Rag archival quality paper.
The inks are metallic silver, light silver, dark silver, yellow, and glossy black enamel.
Each print uses a different combination of colors to create unique looks yet all appear part of the same series.
At first the art may seem to be pure nonrepresentational abstraction but upon closer inspection
you will see that they are pictures of Hollywood film stars.

Marilyn Monroe in “The Seven Year Itch” is immortalized in one of the prints as is Jane Russell in “The Outlaw”.
Also used as inspiration are pin-ups, cheesecake pictures, swimsuit models, magazine cover actresses, and tight sweater girls.
Photos that inspired the art are placed next to each print to aid the viewer.

MICHELANGELO by Bob Kessel

Bob Kessel signing his print based on Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel art

“The greatest danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short, but in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark.”

– MICHELANGELO


 

Bob Kessel’s art series “MICHELANGELO” features pictures based on the works of the Italian Renaissance artist Michelangelo Buonarroti. These pictures are available as signed and numbered limited edition original fine art prints. Contact Bob Kessel for pricing and availability.

Sistine Chapel (Italian: Cappella Sistina) is the best-known chapel in the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the Pope in Vatican City. It is famous for its architecture, evocative of Solomon’s Temple of the Old Testament, and its decoration which has been frescoed throughout by the greatest Renaissance artists including Michelangelo, Raphael, Bernini, and Sandro Botticelli. Under the patronage of Pope Julius II, Michelangelo painted 12,000 square feet of the chapel ceiling between 1508 and 1512. He resented the commission, and believed his work only served the Pope’s need for grandeur. However, today the ceiling, and especially The Last Judgement, are widely believed to be Michelangelo’s crowning achievements in painting.
