Landscape and the outdoors is a reoccurring theme in my work over the last few years. I am often drawn to the idea of being small in a big world as well as a sense of fragility. I like the idea of the viewer’s personal narrative that is constructed when viewing the image. I wanted to create a sense of space, emptiness but also the feeling of being able to go and explore and discover. Night Swimming is a three colour screen print of an original illustration that I’ve done. Its printed onto 250gsm Fabriano Unica 50% Cotton cream paper. The size of the print is 18.5 by 57 cm with the paper size being 25 by 63cm. The print has been hand printed by myself and is sold unframed and is shipped in a sturdy postal tube. Frame and mount not included.
