Dark Hedges XXIII
Dark Hedges is one of Stanley Donwood's most recent prints and part of the artist's latest exhibition WAY OUT, currently shown at Whistleblower Gallery.
One of a Limited Editon of 44, it is based on the original drawing in graphite by the same name.
Each print has been made using a base of copper which the artist has distressed with a solution of chemicals and water to cause the creation of verdigris. The verdigris tonnes and texture appear where the artist has chosen to apply the emulsion, therefore each resulting piece in the edition is different and unique.
Once this oxidation process has taken place (24 to 48 hours later), the gilded surface is sealed in varnish and layers of hand-mixed graphite ink are then overprinted, thus paying hommage to the original drawings and their rich use of graphite.
“These drawings constitute a detailed map of what occupied my bewildered mind during the depths of the winter of corona virus.” (Stanley Donwood).
Each print is from a signed and numbered edition of 44. The artist has used Roman numerals in this edition to honour the uniqueness of each print.
