Whilst walking, having my hour of exercise, I was struck by a newly painted wall of graffiti at Swansea Rec. It communicates an important message at this challenging time and is a stark reminder whilst we are all still on lockdown. I was inspired to capture the moment by creating a piece of work to reinforce and share the same message. It is vital we do not lose momentum, and stay at home wherever possible to protect the most vulnerable in our society and NHS.
The Wales Air Ambulance is a service that relies on the generosity of the public and fundraising, and this is often through face-to-face activity and public events. In response to the crisis in which we all find ourselves, they have launched an emergency appeal. I hope to play a small part in helping to raise funds for this worthy and essential cause, and all profits from this edition will be donated to their emergency appeal.
This is an edition of 15 screenprints, made by layering blocks of colour and printing through hand-cut paper stencils. Printed onto 285gsm Rosapina paper, the image has been created using 14 separate stencils, all carefully registered on top of each other.
Stay home, stay safe and many thanks for your generosity.
