The British artist’s work draws on the design concepts and paradigms of female beauty inherent in art history iconography and advertising

An influential member of the Young British Artists, Angus Fairhurst subverted the iconography of art history and advertising and drew on the design concepts and repeated paradigms of female beauty inherent in both mediums to create photography, paintings and installations.

The first comprehensive review of his graphic work since his death in 2008 is on at the Paul Stolper Gallery from next week. “Unprinted” takes an in-depth look at Fairhurst's printed works, including silkscreen prints “Everything but the Outline Whited-out” and “Everything but the Outline Blacked-in” – based on the advertisement for the perfume Opium and modelled by Sophie Dahl – and his series “When I Woke up in the Morning the Feeling Was Still There”.
