The scene may seem a familiar scene, said the trainee tongue-twister, yet on closer scrutiny we suddenly see that things aren’t quite what they appear to be. Indeed, a fitting living epitaph to the excitingly talented contemporary fine art practitioner (and former jail bird), John Myatt if ever, for those in the know about his past – and well-documented - compositional misdemeanours. The landscaped vista over the fields, the church spire just visible in the distance….yes, ‘Starry Night with New Day Dawning’ has Van Gogh written all over it, yet we all know someone else who could pass off the odd Vincent or three and get away with it; legitimately speaking these days. Pictorially altered just enough to suggest the Dutch master’s handiwork, rather than fake it and to heck with the consequences, the best-selling Myatt’s brand new Spring 2018 giclee limited edition is described as ‘loosely based’ on an existing artwork. Hereabouts Myatt focuses on constructing a landscape that obeys the formal rules of perspective, yet is energised by colour and vigorous brushwork. Like you know who. However the signature clearly states Myatt in the corner of this sublime 38” x 32” limited edition piece, which is now available to convey interest in and of.
