Amidst (2020) unframed CMYK screen print, limited edition hand pulled print from the recent ‘traces’ series of work incorporating found textures in urban spaces with figurative imagery.
The work stems from a deep desire to embrace imperfection and remain present amidst all of the challenges and expectations being placed upon us. The pose itself illustrates a calming of the mind and connection to the body. It’s a celebration of being present the mist of being pulled in different directions. The beauty of the colours layered through screen printing. The surface texture is created from layers captured in decayed urban spaces, found symbols pull the eye away.
The work is handmade, beginning as a figurative ink drawing. I am drawn to urban spaces and the beauty of the decay tracing the passage of time, I document these through photography and infuse the found textures with colours that symbolise growth energy and healing on photoshop, and finally I incorporate the figure and finalise the image.
This is part of a series of work, you can find other pieces in my shop including smaller works. Each is a limited edition, handmade using stencils. As they are not reproductions they are only available in the size that they are created in.
I use a process called CMYK, this is a process where my image is split into 4 colours (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) and stencils are created for each colour layer. The stencils are exposed onto a fine mesh screen using UV light and printed by hand in the studio. The handmade nature of the process means that each print differs slightly. As a limited edition- the matrix is destroyed after the edition has been printed.
This limited edition is made up of 15 prints in total and is a variable edition, each is numbered, titled and signed by the artist in pencil at the bottom. Each one is slightly different (noted by the VE by the edition number)
