Information about Shush By Jody Thomas:
Jody Thomas is a Bristol based artist, working since the late 1980s, who ranks amongst the likes of Inkie, Cheo and Bansky. Thomas considers himself an 'aerosol artist' (rather than strictly 'Graffiti'), taking the spray medium to new levels. Drawing inspiration from fashion and film, Thomas creates prints of strong graphic character, often employing a film-noir aesthetic in his female portraiture. 'Shush' depicts only the mouth and nose of a woman, strands of hair and the edges of her eyelashes just visible at the perimeters of the print. Her soft, pink lips - formed into a 'shush' sound - dominate the image and, in place of a finger held up to hush the viewer, Thomas has painted the point of a sword, just pressed against the heroine's top lip. The image has been rendered in hyper-real style, just a hairs-breadth away from photography but laced with the soft texture of aerosol art. The result is bold, graphic and sensual: a piece that invites you to simply surrender and gaze.
