Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

'Fan' is hand-made screenprint, using a split fountain gradient and bold red and black layers to foreground the tower crane, a skeletal figure of city development and destruction.

Tower cranes are agents of construction and destruction, and are proxies for economic growth. They are the most obvious symbol of urban change, and yet so common are they in our cities that they have become unremarkable. We have developed a blind spot for the politics of urban change. This piece uses a repeating pattern and gradient to show the permanence and temporality of urban change.

Limited edition of 25, signed and numbers by the artist.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Kildare

Based in: London

Tadhg Caffrey is an Irish print-based artist and researcher. Currently based in London, his work is primarily through photography and screenprinting, with a focus on city life. Caffrey's work explores how the process of printing changes how we view cities, and how citizens can use printmaking to become the architects and urban planners of their neighbourhoods.

Caffrey has worked on series relating to city infrastructure including how electricity pylons, petrol stations and tower cranes connect us to urban environments. A recurring theme in Caffrey's work is tracing capitalism in cities, with works focusing on disappearing businesses in London high streets and gentrification. His works have been shown in various exhibitions in the UK and Ireland.
