The new exhibition set started out from a few prints that I did for the brick lane exhibition last year. Aluminium is a great medium to work with, I was worried about the expense and the fact that the prints are a lot less predictable, especially with the process of painting and scratching of the metal beforehand, I thought that any wastage would have quickly added up.
One of the great things though is the fact that if the prints come out badly, then some water and a scoured, soon get the metal back to the state that it was in before going through the printer.
I love the fact that the prints have a chaos element too, the paint and the metal combine to help create the image as much as the photoshop file that gets sent to the printer
Finally seeing the image emerge from the printer is like unwrapping a surprise that you have been building up for weeks.
