Solar System Parameters

Available now on pre-order, the first book from London based graphic artist and painter Phil Ashcroft. Charting his work from 2005 - 2013, Solar System Parameters offers an in-depth view on the artist and his work.

Phil Ashcroft explores influences and obsessions, from sci-fi icons and dystopian visions, to an appreciation of painters, contemporary and historic, all the time pushing the possibilities of his media, be it screen print, paint (on canvas or wall), or pixels. Working since the 90s, this is the first comprehensive review of Ashcroft’s prolific career, bringing together a diverse selection of his paintings, lightboxes and prints.

Full colour, hardback, 120 pages, strictly limited to 300 copies. All pre-orders will be signed by the artist.

Text includes essay’s on Ashcroft’s practice by Paul Hobson, Director, Modern Art Oxford and Simon Hollington, Artist and Associate Lecturer in Contextual Studies at Central St Martins, London.

"Cynical, dissatisfied, border-line disruptive, the work broods with a simmering revolutionary disquiet."Paul Hobson

"Phil Ashcroft – a 21st century John Martin if John Martin was painting Mega-City One after the neutron bomb had been dropped"Simon Hollington

Designed and edited by Rob Swain.

Orders ship in December/January 2013/14.
