About the Work
Brian Giles, also known as Sonofafox, is a Dublin-based printmaker and Damn Fine Print Studio member. In a series of new works called 'Layers', Giles experiments with shapes and patterns inspired by the natural figures he observed and photographed in the National Botanic Gardens. Giles has created twelve unique designs printed in a CMYK setup working from his photographs. Last December, the collection was first released with a joint exhibition with Luke Ready in Studio 10.
Creating new colours through layering has always fascinated Giles, and now he's taken inspiration from the complexities of colour and design found in Ireland's natural flora, such as the sunflowers in the glasshouses of Glasnevin. In the wake of COVID-19, Giles seeks to inspire colour and positivity with new prints based on intricate plant-life patterns, embracing an ethos of growth, rebirth, and affirmation, which is innate in the natural world.
