About the edition
David Shrigley’s edition expands upon the much recognised dialogue between the artist and his audience. Confronting the passer-by with a deadpan proclamation, he discloses an uncomfortably candid take on his working methods as an artist. Taking the appearance of a brief handwritten note from the artist to the viewer, each print bears a trail of the laborious and slightly awkward process with which the artist hand-cut each oversized letter from lino. At DCA the artist also developed his own ‘hand cut’ font for a new series of large-scale monoprints produced at the Print Studio.
This edition is the result of the collaborative international residency project 'Below another sky', developed by the Scottish Print Network. More information about this project can be found at belowanothersky.org
