From 2005: Peter Blake’s silkscreens of unfolded cigarette packets. Partly an appreciation of vintage graphic design & printed ephemera—and partly a demonstration of traditional trompe l'oil, including as it does, the folds, wrinkles and frayed edges of the originals.
“…Sir Peter Blake's found art cigarette packets or fag packets as they have come to be affectionately known. This series demonstrates Blake’s belief that beauty can be found anywhere, even in objects that most would believe to be rubbish. The fag packets highlight iconic 20th century design and branding, a key component in the pop art movement. The simplicity of these pieces adds to their wallpower.”
