A HISTORY OF US PRINTS
These screen prints were released as part of the 'A History Of Us' solo show. As with all our screen prints now, we have proudly printed these ourselves and that's why they have our (literal) stamp of approval on them. There are other prints to see further down but here's the description for the print above, titled 'One Long Story':
If I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants...
From velociraptors to romans, Einstein to robots and Napolean to the first man on the moon, I'd like to think this print will keep you occupied for a while. The best way I can describe the making of this print is comparing it to a jigsaw. You don't even want to know how difficult it is to get everything to 'slot' into each other so they're perfectly visible and, at the same time, not obscuring something else. Add into that colour and compositional balance and it can take a very long time.
I wanted to get as many of the fascinating entries from the historical timeline that the 'A History Of Us' show is based on into a screen print and this is the chaotic result! Since we started pulling our own prints in-house, this print (with eight glorious colours, each laid down one by one) was a massive challenge for us but we think it was well worth the sweat...some of which might be in the ink but hopefully you find that more interesting than anything else, hah!
