Limited edition screen-print Untitled from The Haymarket Print Suite by Adrian Wiszniewski. This screen-print is presented in four sections with colourful line drawings on a black background. The print is a fine example of the artist’s approach at this time, as he utilised this medium to portray figurative elements in a dynamic and graphic way.
The Haymarket Print Suite, published in 1990, was the result of a collaborative project called ‘Platform for Modern Art’ undertaken by the National Galleries of Scotland, Art in Partnership Scotland and Scotrail. Alan Davie, John Bellany, Adrian Wiszniewski and Bruce McLean, four leading Scottish artists, were selected by Richard Calvocoressi, Director Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (1987-2007) and commissioned to create one of the four images that make up the Suite.
The artists were not given a specific theme for the Suite but were advised that the prints should be colourful and eye-catching to attract attention on the busy railway platform. The Suite was published in an edition of 30 and printed by Peacock Printmakers in Aberdeen on Arches velin 300gsm paper, each print is signed and numbered by the artist. A set was permanently framed to hang on the platform at Haymarket Station in Edinburgh. Unveiled in October 1990, the original set was on display there until 1999.
Adrian Wiszniewski (born 1958) is a Scottish artist and one of the New Glasgow Boys, who led the resurgence of Scottish figurative painting in the late 20th century. Wiszniewski’s work had featured in The Vigorous Imagination, a survey of Scottish contemporary art held at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in 1987.
