Peter Blake: The London Suite at Paul Stolper Gallery

Peter Blake, London – Piccadilly Circus – The Convention of Comic Book Characters, 2012. Silkscreen print on 410gsm Somerset, tub sized. Edition of 100 and 10 AP’s. Signed and numbered by artist. Sheet size: 66.6. x 65.2 cm. Image size 50 x 50 cm.

On the off chance you were longing for a little more post-Olympics London in your life, pop artist Peter Blake’s exhibition of collage screenprints should satiate. Continuing a city-collage series that he’s been developing for the last few years with Paris and Venice (an aesthetic made famous in 1967 with his cover design for the Sgt. Pepper’s album), the London Suite pairs postcard views of city sights crowded with an overwhelming number of strange tourists. These city scenes teem with characters and figures spanning centuries. Blake’s tongue-in-cheek juxtapositions seem apt, and, given the assortment of people in London for the Olympics, entirely possible: Piccadilly Circus is filled with comic book superheros, Westminster Abbey is overtaken by animals, and the Thames overflows with a mismatched regatta.

The London Suite is on view at Paul Stolper Gallery (31 Museum Street, London, WC1A 1LH), through 1 September 2012.
