About the Project
A companion piece to the ‘Dresser’ prints, this is a bolder composition, leaning heavily on the implied level surface (Mantel) at the base of the chaotic main square. The square compositional motif is accentuated by ‘outlining’ the orange square with a metallic grey ‘sprayed’ square. “It’s like, how much more square could this be? And the answer is none; none more square.” Note – there’s variation in the black strokes on the prints – the top left hand corner stroke end has less or more ink from print to print.
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.
