Description

La Mela. Original color silkscreen, unknown year. Edition of 100 signed and numbered impressions on Arches paper.
Janez Bernik was an internationally acclaimed Slovenian contemporary artist and academic. He was a painter, engraver, sculptor, illustrator, graphic designer and poet and his graphic prints are kept in numerous worldwide-known galleries. Bernik has made textural abstract paintings and prints on the theme of the unspoilt texture of the earth, with indecipherable inscriptions evocative of ancient documents. This graphic is a typical Bernik’s combination of images and words. In the forefront we can see a silhouette of a girl, an Italian word ‘la mela’ (eng. apple) and a portrait of two girls looking like a postage stamp. The whole print reminds us of surrealists playing with terms and techniques like a photogram and a collage.
