In the vein of the series Like a dog returns to it's vomit that the Chapman Brothers made by what they refer to as "improving" a set of prints of Francisco Goya's 18th-century etchings Los Caprichos, Jake not Dinos depicts a version of the most famous image from this set The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters. The etching is heavily reworked with additions of graffiti-like markings that obscure the original title including a gigantic eyeball-sun and monstrous creatures that appear to be tormenting the restless sleeper. Jake and Dinos Chapman have returned to Goya's work throughout their career and this series finds them in the throes of lashing out at their muse.Read Less
About the Artist
About Jake Chapman
Expert craftsmen of work that is as visually tantalizing as it is revolting, the Chapman brothers have steadfastly pursued provocative and shocking subject matter with subversive wit and abject nihilism. They rose to prominence as part of the Young British Artists movement and were included in the Sensation exhibition at the Royal Academy of Art, London in 1997. In 2003 they were short-listed for the Turner Prize at Tate Britain, London and were recently exhibited at White Cube, London, in 2011.Read Less
