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.
Limited Edition of 200 Prints – Print Size: 27x36cm – Overall size including white mount: 42x51cm.
Signed and numbered print: backed, mounted and bagged. The Original artwork is scanned and colour proofed, then printed onto an acid free, slightly textured 310gsm alpha/cotton mix paper using archival inks.

When looked after there should not be any fading/degradation on the prints for 70+ years.​
