About the Piece
This started out life intended for the Damn Fine Print ‘Electric Dreams’ exhibition, but two colours in, I realised it was tonally in a different territory. It has an accidental landscape quality, and started to remind me of chirpy mid-century modernist travel poster design. So I gave it a further nudge into this territory, but using my typical modular geometric elements. It’s the epitome of running with a happy accident.
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.
