BALTIC Edition: Jim Shaw / Limited Edition Print


BALTIC Edition: Jim Shaw / Limited Edition Print



Hairdo is a hand printed edition especially produced by Jim Shaw for his exhibition The Rinse Cycle at BALTIC, Gateshead.

The comic book image of a 1960s bouffant wig references a passage from Shaw’s proposed prog rock opera based on his fictional religion Oism, a narrative he has been working on for more than 20 years. The image also refers to the mural The Rinse Cycle 2012, included in the exhibition, in which a group of oversized bouffant hairdos hover around a desert landscape they share with the interior view of a washing machine in mid-cycle. 

Edition of 100, signed and numbered by the artist.

Printed on white Somerset Satin 300gsm
