Artwork description

Paul Huxley’s multi-disciplinary practice includes painting, sculpture and printmaking. This limited edition print is one of a series that has spanned a number of years and has its origins in a large wall drawing that the artist made for the 2015 Venice Biennale. The image is derived from statistical data relating to the impact that mankind is making on planet Earth, specifically in terms of air pollution. The forms in the image relate to the amounts of poisonous gases that are produced. The ‘balancing act’ in Huxley’s composition suggests precariousness and insecurity.

All proceeds from sales of this work go directly to support the non-profit-making areas of the Royal Academy, particularly the RA Schools.
