This trio of prints were made to enquire into the difficulty of reaching somewhere far away on a journey made on foot. Somewhere quiet where all the clamour is forgotten and the loudest shouting is from the wind.
This eight-layer screen print is called 'Aeratus Llyn; aeratus being the Latin for bronze and llyn being a Welsh word used to describe a lake.
This print was made by mixing bronze powder from L.Cornelissen & Son in London with varnish, and to create the effect of distance, different layers of black ink are interspersed with the bronze varnish. The original drawings were made with a brush and ink on layers of tracing paper.
A hand-pulled screen print on Fabriano Rosapina Bianco paper. Signed and numbered by Stanley Donwood and blind-embossed with the Slowly Downward Manufactory Stamp.
