Lucinda, Strand Gallery Manager

“Before we launched The Strand Gallery, I worked for Proud Galleries and helped to organise numerous exhibitions on The Rolling Stones. It’s great to see a fresh perspective on these musical icons – I love Will’s approach. It’s a unique little piece in a beautiful antique gold box-frame; a real one-of-a-kind. I love how it feels both futuristic and retro at the same time.”

 
 
 
 
 
 
Warhol’s Pop Art Soup
William Blanchard
2012
45 x 64 cm
Screen Print on Cyclus Offset Paper, 250 gsm
£50 ex VAT

Liz Thornhill, Head of Press – Proud Galleries

“The Pop Art Soup prints are definitely my favourite in the show. They are so quintessentially Warhol and radiate Blanchard’s extraordinary admiration for Andy Warhol and the pop art movement. I love how the prints come in a range of colours (Red, Black, Green and Pink), especially the luminous pink, as it exemplifies Warhol’s colour palette perfectly! The prints are so fun and so affordable that anyone can own these unique pieces of art and find a place for them in their homes.”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
2 Marlyins with Butterflies, William Blanchard, 2012, 74 x 112 cm,
Collage and Varnish on Wood, £2500 ex VAT
 

Jessica Tamman, Strand Gallery Assistant

“I came across 2 Marylins with Butterflies when I was researching my first blogpost for the Blanchard show; it was  definitely love at first sight! It is an unique piece that has a wonderful character and a beautiful aesthetic. The piece incorporates every aspect of Blanchard’s style and technique, from the use of collage and found objects, to the quotations of his idols such as Blake and Warhol. I love the way Blanchard makes use of an old door as a surface – and embellishes it with collage – in order to create a new form that echoes his love for art and his respect for his predecessors.”

The exhibition finishes on Saturday 4th August. For further sales information or to request a catalogue please contact info@thestrandgallery.co.uk
