Withheld number *Last one*
The last one and by a strange quirk it's number 1 of 10. This guy went off to gallery and didn't sell, he's now back with me and for sale through the artist support pledge.
A self portrait here. I'm not the biggest fan of the mobile phone. I find them invasive and enthralling at the same time. This illustration shows the moment a withheld number calls, and the urge to hang up without answering.
The final piece is an 8 colour enamel screen print, printed directly onto the screen of a white iPhone 5c. The black of the illustration is the screen of the phone itself showing through the negative spaces left by the rest of the print. Printed in an edition of just 10
The phone itself has had the battery removed and been painstakingly cleaned to remove all traces of the previous owner before being hand printed. As each phone that comes to the studio has it's own character, each piece in the edition is unique, pictured here is a white iPhone 5c but this edition also includes a blue, yellow and green 5cs.
The printed iPhone is presented float mounted in a hand built black box frame, it is signed, dated, numbered and titled on the reverse of the frame.
The piece is sent tracked and signed with the Royal Mail.
