About the Piece
A first outing on studies relating to migrating AI compositions to the analogue screen print medium. A partially rendered AI opposition I dictated is grabbed while not yet fully resolved, to retain the soft focus aspect. The image is then reworked to reproduce in a faux process colour print, with yellow and magenta replaced with fluorescent green and pink, and a unique monoprint layer is used in the sky. A grid of evolving square-to-circle forms is then superimposed and gilded with faux silver leaf.
About the Artist
Alastair is a graphic design graduate of NCAD and the Royal College of Art. He’s worked as a designer, and design educator, for far too long to dwell on. Interested in process and materiality in printmaking, he’s previously worked in letterpress, but returned to screen printing in 2017.
Often found devising an image-making technique, and then discovering ways to undermine, abuse, and subvert it. Loves a happy accident. Disinterested in rigorous adherence to consistency in a world of perfect reproduction. Which is convenient.
