A suite of unique screenprints [no editions have been created]. Designs for book covers for Orwell’s works. Based on both the graphic and physical qualities derived from the overlayerings, degradation and tearing/ripping of posters from billboards. The portrait element was transferred from three [same size] self-portraits painted on acetate sheets which were then directly exposed onto the silk screen.

Liquitex acrylics on Seawhites 300gsm  and Fabriano Artistico papers.   A1 size

Printed as a contribution to the forthcoming tribute exhibition to the work of George Orwell, working title ‘room 103’. Full details to follow.

The prints will preview at PRINTFEST
