This is my new screen print of 30, St Mary Axe in the City of London - formerly known as the Swiss RE building and mostly known as the Gherkin.
Its been one of my favourite buildings in London for a while. I love the way the framework twists around the contours of the building, I love the way the light catches it in different ways and I love way it contrasts with the older buildings of the city - particularly the medieval church in the foreground.
This is a hand pulled three colour reduction print, each layer created by painting on the screen with screen blocking fluid so the picture is created in negative.
I like to keep editions short and this one is an edition of 13 plus one artist's proof with a slightly different colour final layer. The print size is
an image of 17mm x 24mm on rough watercolour paper 28mm x 38mm.
The Gherkin is priced at £119.

For a long time people were not keen to buy art online and then, a few years ago, something changed their minds. These days I am approached for paintings and prints by way of Masham Gallery website, my Facebook and Twitter connections, through the various other gallery websites where my work appears and through this site. In addition there are a number of art outlets that start up every year - the only problem is knowing which ones to use. There's Etsy and Folksy for the craft end of the market and Saatchi for the more out there stuff but I've recently set up on a well established platform: Artfinder.
Artfinder seems to offer one of the easiest buying systems and it also seems to attract some very good artists. So I've put up a selection of some of my favourite paintings and prints, including those above and below. I hope you see something you like. To visit CLICK HERE
