About the Project
Continuing on with studies around square and circular forms, this piece is inspired by the Irish Country Dresser. Dressers were/are not only the home, and stage, for display crockery, but sometimes for chickens or other fowl, in the cosy base of the dresser, with straw bedding. The idea of compartmentalised modular elements, strange bedfellows, and preciousness led to this composition.
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.
