My current work uses a variety of over-printing techniques with stencil blocked spray-paint as a base. I use images of well-known Scottish locations, vintage collages, and graphically hand cut pieces to create varied edition works. The ever-expanding range of small batch paint/print multiples are individually titled, embossed, editioned and signed.
I enjoy focusing on the graphic geometries of images, their registry points, and look at all compositions as a series of colour blocks. I collate, and play around with, old Scottish postcards, iconic national landmarks, pop culture imagery, graphic street art, and typography as a starting reference points to build upon.
Having taught art for many years, the process has been a rediscovery of my interest in printmaking processes. The steps involved in planning and executing these pieces have been great fun, and I am looking forward to developing my ideas further through larger format works and themed exhibitions.
