Platinum Jubilee - Edition Release
By Scott Tetlow
Scott Tetlow has beautifully portrayed Her Majesty The Queen in his unique vision, as we celebrate the Platinum Jubilee this summer.
Scott is renowned for his interpretations of iconic females of the 20th & 21st century, and this extra special subject is given the fanfare it deserves with two visions of Her Majesty, denoting the most significant moments in her reign: The ascension and the historic milestone of 2022.
Quintessentially Tetlow in their modernity and inception, there is an unreserved elegance to his stylist interpretations, which are imbued with spirit, strength, and resolve. These images beautifully encapsulate, and commemorate, the leadership of the first British monarch to celebrate 70 years of service.
Scott lived in Taiwan for a time and his studies of calligraphy have greatly influenced his work. Through his love of calligraphy, Scott has developed a form of painting that is linear and yet absent of the constraints of calligraphy. Instead, it is characterised by a sense of freedom of movement, which is balanced and contained in considered composition. This movement adds to the illusion of life and spirit. There is a confidence of line, a strength in the flow of creation that adds to the energy of the artwork. Quite clearly there is an abstraction to the work, but there is a realism too that gives his female forms character, personality and a beauty that is unsurpassed.
