About the Piece
A dark and stormy companion to ‘Tab – Yellow’. Tab is a study of a common modular tab-shaped element applied to a grid structure, with alternating over-printed orientation, and shifts of hue and translucency within the dark desaturated field. The pattern is disturbed by one copper-gilded aberration in the formula. The piece is about modular patterns, layering, subtle shifts, and building complexity with simple elements.
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.
