About the Artist
Harry Rüdham (b.1996, UK) is a British artist whose practice is informed by a multitude of self-made and found sources. Thematically, Rüdham’s paintings form a stylised observation of contemporary life, beginning not as a rejection of city life but an interpretation of city ‘rest’, whether this be in a park, biergarten or lake. Most evident in his work is an admiration of paper and oil pastels, each presenting their own unique immediacy as a medium. By ripping and reassembling paper he transforms photographs, often of daily life, into overlaying planes of colour. Harry lives and works in London, UK.
About the Artwork
The work is based on ‘Paper Cut’ experiments of Hockney’s ‘Bean Pools’. Using flat colours to emulate the reverse colour’s of Pool Party III.
