Many of Van Gogh’s paintings have become so prolific that it seems almost impossible to say which one is the most appreciated, the most artistically successful or the most interesting. But without a doubt, the series of Sunflowers, painted by Van Gogh during the summer of 1888 is definitely a highlight within the history of impressionist art. Using his signature yellow, and piling up layers of expressive paint with thick impasto brushstrokes, Van Gogh returned to the Sunflowers subject almost obsessively, seeking out the interplay of light and colour, always exploring nature and the world around him.
This fourth version in a series is at home now in the National Gallery in London and is widely celebrated as Van Gogh at his very best. Our Art Squared homage to Sunflowers offers up a colourful, abstracted version of this much loved painting and the bold yellows mixed with more muted, natural tones allow this print to brighten up any space.

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”Leonardo da Vinci
The idea for Art Squared first came to me back when I was studying art history. Even though I loved classical paintings, I preferred a more modern aesthetic. And while decorating my home, I found that hanging copies of some of the old classics didn’t really work alongside contemporary décor. So I began to wonder if there was a way to capture some of what I loved about these works and render it in a modern form.
The result is Art Squared. The process is one of careful and deliberate abstraction to a grid of five by seven squares that seeks to capture the colours of the original work along with something of the composition. It is not a case of simply pixellating old paintings – which gives a crude result full of meaningless browns and greys – but rather a precise reframing and recolouring in order to create pleasing compositions that work on their own, irrespective of whether a viewer knows anything about the paintings on which they are based.
So, in making these prints, I didn’t feel burdened by the need to represent the original paintings too closely. I wanted to produce something new, albeit strongly inspired by art that’s old, familiar and loved.
