About the Project
It’s a big sweetie, that glistens in the light as you move by it, but it’s calorie-free!
Safety Notice, Please Note when handling print:
Diamond dust is actually small shards of glass, held in place on the surface of the print by a matt acrylic medium. If you brush your hand, or other exposed skin, against the diamond dust, you may scratch or cut yourself. The print should be mounted behind (ideally; anti-glare) glass for safety purposes. The print will be shipped in a wide diameter tube, to ensure no rubbing of the diamond glass area occurs, but care should be taken when removing the print from the tube, in case any shards have shed in transit.
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.
