Robert Cottingham Champagne

Robert Cottingham Champagne 2009 is a colored Screenprint on wove paper with full margins. Robert Cottingham Champagne is from the American Signs Portfolio. This print it signed, numbered and dated from the printer’s proof edition of 10, aside from the edition limited edition of 100.

Robert Cottingham uses mid-20th-century signs or what he has called “tools of the Everyman,” in various dynamic compositions with intensified color and light. The artist has described his fascination with signs as originating from trips to Times Square as a child: “I think that’s when the seed was planted, when I saw the kind of activity going on above the ground level.” Obsessed with the precise geometry of his subjects, Cottingham’s process incorporates a series of steps that can include sketches, photographs, shapes mapped onto grids, and model construction. His crisp, often-monumental canvases celebrate and accentuate the forms of his subjects while remaining devoid of nostalgia. He lists Franz Kline, Edward Hopper, and the New Realists among his influences.
