“CORNUCOPIA GALACTICA"

Michael Craig-Martin was born in Dublin in 1941. He is best known for his line drawings and intensely coloured paintings, sculptures, prints and installations based on images of familiar objects. He was awarded a CBE in 2000, elected an RA in 2006, and knighted in 2016.

His work is represented by

"Normally I only draw images of ordinary mass-produced objects, everything from safety pins to shoes and chairs, from books to mobile phones and laptops. During the lockdown the only direct shopping that was possible was for food, and I found myself looking at fruit and vegetables in a new way and began to draw them. This digital work is the result.


It is a celebration, a dynamic cornucopia, a galaxy of these great wonders of nature, constantly moving, turning, spinning through an intensely coloured space like planets, satellites, and spaceships. I hope you never look at broccoli the same way again."
