Proofing colours for the Crime Scene screenprint

What a great day, just come back from Artizan Editions (the screen printers that produced Bridget Riley's prints) and have just been proofing the colours for the limited edition Crime Scene Screenprint.

Heres the low down & a few of the nitty gritty ace details:

Its a limited edition screen print run of 50, which will be launched for my solo show "I fell in love with a Video Nasty" at Fairtrade Gallery, Montague Place, Brighton on 2nd May 2008.

The paper size is 1 metre x 70 cm (so quite a substantial size!) the actual image ink area is 79 x 44 cm, printed on heavy 300 gsm paper

its a 6 colour edition (grey, white, cream, red, blue & Black) the beauty of it is that the layers are translucent and I have made the layers quite stippled, so it looks very original & has a great depth, The grey layer is mixed with a medium very loosely which mixes when it is being printed, so that the whole piece has some great movement and layers of colour....

I have fallen in love with the process, it really is an exquisite art, I must say that Artizan are the top of their game, they seem to be able to achieve some really experimental techniques and have been able to adapt the print process to my work to achieve the very vintage and bleached out effect of my flags.

The last thing is the "dirty varnish" which Sally suggested to tie in all the colours together, and it made the print so much richer and more sepia, so all in all its going to be a very beautiful print.

Still, me & Tim left them a list of tweaks to do, very minor details, but as we are investing in the print run of 50 we need it to be right.

Tim is already taking reserves for the edition. Tim Harbridge's gallery email is

They are going quite quickly, just off the back of the flag & the acetates, but no one has seen the final print, I'm going back to Artizan next week for a final proof of the colours & the beautiful varnish. exciting times.
