Sleeping Baby (silver) is a screen print released as an edition of 25 in 2015 upon the unveiling of the mural of the same name at Homerton Hospital, London. This print depicts a restful infant taking a nap on a bed of shimmering silver in Stik’s signature minimalistic style.
An unabashed declaration of gratitude and love for the National Health Service, Sleeping Baby pays tribute to the centrality of healthcare workers to communities everywhere. Of his works, Stik has stated: “they are personal and it’s about the micro and macro; the within and the without. I guess it’s small-p political.” This sentiment is crystal clear in Sleeping Baby, which brings a vibrant political message of the importance of protecting public services and resisting privatisation; upon the work’s unveiling, Stik remarked that ‘suffering is not a commodity to be bought and sold’.
The print features a six-line stickman figure sleeping on its side with its eyes closed. With one hand clutching the scalp and the other cushioning the face, the figure seems vulnerable and safe at the same time, both at ease and precarious. The communication of its politically-charged message is all the more potent in the artist’s compelling and mellow six-line drawing style.
