Wall St. 5 colour screen print on 9mm birch plywood with epoxy resin finish. 40x60cm. Edition of 12. 2018.
This is probably my favourite piece from my series of NYC prints on wood. For this piece I was crouched down looking up at the skyscrapers of downtown Manhattan trying to capture both street level and the tops of the towering buildings.
I captured a series of photographs of the same suited banker walking down Wall St. I pieced these together and erased all the other people and all the traffic to leave one lonely guy walking through the city. This piece really captures the buildings looming over our main character and is a window onto Manhattan ready for your wall.
The prints on plywood have a subframe and d-ring on the reverse and are ready to hang requiring no framing. The subframe on the reverse make the print, when hung, appear to float an inch off your wall.
The wood is a beautiful surface to print on, I love that each piece of wood has it’s own unique grain pattern and that although the prints are in an edition each of the pieces has it’s own character.
The resin finish both protects the print and gives a stunning glossy finish, particularly on the areas of naked wood where it leaves the surface rich and glowing with life. There is another print on the reverse where they are titled, signed, numbered and dated.
