Jake Chapman - The Marriage of Reason & Squalor(2008). Hand coloured limited edition etching - #47 of 250. Signed and numbered in pencil by the artist. Frame 37 x 35cm, float mounted in a wooden ash frame. Working together with his older brother, Dinos Chapman, Young British Artist Jake Chapman has been producing installations, sculptures, paintings, and works on paper since the early 1990s that appall, anger, seduce, and thrill-often simultaneously.
An iconoclast to his core, Chapman describes himself as a collection of traitorous little traits that add up to make the big deplorable trait that is me, me, me. Such tongue-in-cheek humor underpins all of his work, through which he confronts the horrors and excesses of history, culture, politics, and religion with an unforgiving aesthetic. He does not shy away from representations of sex, violence, and mutilation. In Fucking Hell (2008), for example, he and his brother created an immense tabletop tableau representing the 20th century as a grotesque, apocalyptic warscape.
