CCA Galleries International is delighted to partner with Branchage film festival launching Sir Peter Blake’s new collection of work based on the nostalgic world of movie stills, film icons and comic book characters.
The exhibition entitled Jersey Bounce marks the start of Branchage film festival which officially launches on Wednesday 24th September with a special opening by the artist himself, Sir Peter Blake. The show continues until Friday 31st October 2014.
Included in the display are the artist’s new limited edition silkscreen prints with a selection of original works. The collection reflects Blake’s focus on nostalgia as a key part of pop art, as well as his fascination with all streams of popular culture, and the beauty to be found in everyday objects and surroundings.
In his own words, Sir Peter Blake says ‘I’m very much looking forward to showing my new collection of work in wonderful Jersey. This time, I will be filling the Gallery with some exciting never before seen pieces.’
Managing Director of CCA Galleries International, Gillian Duke is pleased to introduce the new show and official start of Branchage Festival;‘This collaboration with Sir Peter Blake and Branchage is the perfect mix of art, film and culture. When putting the show together our aim was to inspire future generations of budding film-makers and artists.’
