1000 micron board, CMYK process inks, each 1056 x 1548mm
"Produced through a performative action of pulling successive layers of CMYK process inks across large sheets of card, laid out on various surfaces. The process used is a reference to the first ever form of printing, and therefore publishing (‘stelae’ relief print techniques developed by the ancient Chinese), however the resultant images appear more like a psychotic, psychedelic glitch."
Each layer of ink combines to produce ‘direct documents’, inimitable representations of a surface that are the results of engaged moments of working within particular situations and contexts, places as varied as my own artist studio or a busy shopping high street. Ambiguous as to whether they are prints, paintings or photographs, analogue or digital, the works somehow sit between all of these. Their digital scan like appearance suggests a breakdown of information, a process that has yielded only partial elements, leaving others to be imagined or invented.” ~ Maurice Carlin via mauricecarlin.com
