Although best known for his small-scale intimate collages of film stills, postcards and other found imagery, John Stezaker's silkscreens reveal another side of the artist.A comprehensive group of these mid- to large-scale silkscreens (1977–94) are brought together here for the first time. They include manipulated imagery of kissing couples, disembodied men and woman, floating baby-heads as well as film stills.While, at first, this body of work seems to stand in contrast to the collages, the silkscreens employ many of the same techniques – cutting out, cropping, slicing and over-laying – that are seen throughout Stezaker's practice. Over 80 images are accompanied by an essay Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith, the first text to discuss the artist's silkscreens as a whole body of work.
