New Screen Print - The Gherkin
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.
