Screenprint title Electric Noir

Electric Noir

Circa 1981
Screen print
Diptych 204 x 76 centimeters

This print, comprised of two 30 x 40 inch sheets laid side by side to form a diptych, is the largest screen print I have attempted. This sheet size is the biggest that can be practically printed manually by one person. The print, with its large areas of flat colour and minimal overprinting, is also technically one of the simplest I have made. The title Electric Noir came from my long interest in noir literature and film, in this case John Boorman's classic crime film Point Blank.
