HEW LOCKE B1959 FINE RARE ORIGINAL SIGNED ETCHING LTD ED OF 50'PUPPETMASTER. This product data sheet is originally written in English. Born in Edinburgh in 1959, Hew Locke spent his formative years in Guyana, South America, before returning to the UK to study Fine Art at Falmouth (1988), and MA Sculpture at the Royal College of Art, London (1994). Developing a practice that explores the visual codes of power and cultural diversity, Locke draws attention to a range of subject matter; including royal portraiture, coats-of-arms, public statuary, trophies, weaponry and costume.
His ability to successfully fuse influences from both his Caribbean and British backgrounds, together with his own political and cultural concerns, makes for some witty, multi-layered works which amalgamate modern materials with historical subject matter. Applying a critical sensitivity to his creative practice, Locke's work stands at a crossroads between cultural associations and historic references that interrogates the symbols of our age. Locke has exhibited extensively including in solo shows. Edward Tyler Nahem Fine Art, New York, 2016.
