Love: Torn Apart Print
8 in stock
Unframed: Limited Edition Fine Art Giclee Print of my pen and ink stipple drawing ‘Love: Torn Apart’.
The original drawing is made up entirely, 100%, of pen ink dots. The drawing took a total of 143 hours to complete. Based on 4 dots per second the original drawing is made up of approximately 2 million ink dots.
The drawing is based upon, and a celebration of, the artwork of 2 Joy Division album covers; Unknown Pleasures and Closer. The cover of Unknown Pleasures depicts a data plot of signals from a radio pulsar. The cover of Closer shows a part of the Appiani family tomb in Genoa’s Monumental Cemetery of Staglieno. The drawing is an expansion and amalgamation of the two.
Stipple drawing is an incredibly slow process that allows for great detail to be achieved and the finished work has a near 3D quality. This 3D quality is replicated in the print edition.
I time each drawing session to be able to know how long each drawing takes to complete. This was an often asked question, the answer to which I was always previously uncertain, though I knew it was a ‘long’ time.
