Jake & Dinos Chapman
Limited Edition Etchings – 7H, 2017
Jake & Dinos Chapman grew up largely in Hastings, a faded seaside town in southeast England. After studying art separately in London, they began their collaborative career in 1988 by enrolling together at the Royal College of Art. From the get-go, they were involved with one of the most famous, and provocative partnerships in world of modern British art, working as assistants to Gilbert & George.
Despite their differences, it is easy to see a kinship between the two duos: the same tendency to combine sophistication and gutter humor, the same desire to explore the topics most likely to cause offence, and, of course, the same sense of working as an indivisible artistic unit. But, since they began their career a quarter of a century ago, the Chapmans’ work has had a strange and disturbing identity all of its own.
