Price £1,900 incl VAT (+ shipping)*
The Tea Table shows a group of upper class ladies sitting down to afternoon tea at a time when it had become very fashionable. Lin appropriates an original engraving (by John Bowles, circa 1710) which was a satire on affluent fashionable ladies and featured a devil lurking under the table as Envy drives Justice and Truth out of a door. In this rendition Candice Lin draws connections between tea, opium and sugar by replacing the symbolic figures with images of tea production and opium abuse. Sold unframed.
This print has been produced to accompany Candice Lin's exhibition A Body Reduced to Brilliant Colour at Gasworks, her first UK solo show.
Candice Lin received her MFA in New Genres at the Salon Breton in Paris (2017), the Kadist Art Foundation in Paris, the Delfina Foundation in London, La Maison Populaire in Paris, and Akuna Zentroa/Alhondiga Bilbao, Spain with recent solo exhibitions at Francois Ghebaly Gallery, Los Angeles and CAAA, Guimarães.
