The Stain of Sin by Clive Hicks-Jenkins. Screen print, signed by the artist. Edition size: 75, image size: 55.5 x 55.5 cm, paper size: 70.5 x 69 cm
This marvellously rich and varied set of prints finishes, fittingly, with a vivid portrait of Gawain himself, a portrait that shows him forever changed by his experiences. How he has evolved through the story, and through these fourteen prints! First seen as a keen but rather anonymous young knight riding at King Arthur’s side, he then took up the axe to strike the Green Knight and became an individual.
