Artist Clive Hicks-Jenkins worked with Daniel Bugg of the Penfold Press to produce original screen prints inspired by the translation of the medieval drama Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. The fourteen screen-prints were created to illustrate Simon Armitage’s retelling of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight in 2007.

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight was written in the 14th century by the mysterious Pearl Poet. It is a medieval classic that feels as fresh and dramatic today as it would have done to its original readers. This tale has been adapted recently to the big screen in David Lowery’s The Green Knight.

Clive Hicks-Jenkins’ prints are a beautiful homage to the medieval origins of the tale, however, he has given the tale a new and fresh vitality with his use of dynamic shapes and contrasting colors.
