Study of Political Graphics

The struggle against injustice is one of humanity’s oldest and greatest ongoing endeavours,” says Blok Design, of its latest bold work for the Center for the Study of Political Graphics (CSPG). “It takes on many forms but perhaps one of the most powerful and immediate is the political poster.

For her latest exhibition at Victoria Miro Venice, she will present a series of paintings that refer to details of public baths in Budapest and also an abandoned swimming pool near Rio de Janeiro.

While her previous paintings represent idealised, near-monochromatic tiled interiors, these new works are painterly evocations of existing places of wellness, leisure and ablution. Relating to ideas such as asepsis, they are equally concerned with traditional painterly concerns and aspirations, such as the desire to capture in oil on canvas the transparency of water and endless modulations of light across its surface.
