Picasso’s Kiki (GZ008) kicked off the story of Swatch and Art with a 140-piece edition, each with different colours. The graphically sophisticated design fits colours together like an unfinished screen print, suggesting the layers of image and meaning that clutter the contemporary world. The image is absent a few colour fields: the white spaces produce the carefully cut and structured effect of a stained-glass window with some panels clear to the light. The figurative representation on the dial is contemporary in style and perspective, with a graphic novel-like rendition of a face and a post-modern jumble of lines and forms fanned out around it.
