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.
