About the Piece
Blueshift and Redshift are based on the scientific method of tracking how far an object is away from Earth; the concept is key to charting the universe's expansion.
Redshift and blueshift describe the change in the frequency of a light wave depending on whether an object is moving towards or away from us. As an object moves away, the spacing between the light waves is stretched, and turns to a red tone. When the object is moving closure to the observer, the light waves are compressed, and give a bluer hue
I used a warm colour and cold colour to represent this method. Having the colours fade away to the page, like how the colours would shift from light.
About the Artist
We first saw Jack’s work at his degree show in IADT, Dun Laoghaire, where he showed an impressive dedication to precision and craft. Jack’s prints are a result of an attention to detail and an embrace of beautiful printing which caught our eyes immediately. He was invited to take part in an internship in our studio and has been a member of Damn Fine Print since, continuing to produce these highly impressive and individualistic works while exploring and expanding on his style.
