Limited edition prints

Posted in News by Andy Wicks on 18 March, 2011

I’m pleased to announced the release of my first Limited Edition Prints which I have produced in collaboration with Rise Art. Given the opportunity to create two new pieces exclusively for the edition run I decided to embrace the printing process to achieve the sort of perfection usually impossible for a painter dealing with a wet and reactionary paint process. I have previously found myself spending time trying to recreate a particular finish with limited success. Each piece was painted with oils on paper with the foreground and background scanned and superimpose together. I decided to use the same background on each to challenge the idea of the pieces every existing in a form other than the finished composed print, through the printing process the works are completed. Both prints feature a Thames dolphin (mooring construction) which have been the subject of my recent series of works, both feature a metal Tripod form showing signs of age while still being distinctly different.

The sharpness of the veins of paint in the background flow beneath the image rooting the structure to a deep and rich earthy surround. While the central image reveals the brush marks and flicks of paint giving it the illusion of standing proud of the paper, this creates a similar contrast to my paintings which have a deep gloss background with a flat matt central image.

Details for both editions : Paper Size: 450mm x 600mm, Image: 373mm x 525mm, Archival Pigment Print on 315 gsm Cotton Rag paper with hand torn edges, Edition of 25

    really interesting interview, i like your confidence, best of luck for the future.
    shame about the sound though, really begged for a directional mic.

      Hi Juno, thanks for your comment. Glad you like the video, I agree a closer mic would have helped but for my first attempt in front of the camera thought it came out okay.
