Artist's description:

1pm in Vigo

This print is based on a drawing I made while sitting in a cafe in Vigo. In summertime the clocks in Spain are set two hours ahead of Greenwich but Vigo actually lies a good half hour west of Greenwich. At 1 PM in Vigo it is only approaching 10.30 AM by the solar clock. In other words, by manipulating the time, the government encourages the citizens of Vigo to start drinking early!

This print is pulled from an image cut out of a sheet of rubber, and is a variation of letterpress printing. After removal of areas that are to be left as white paper, the remaining rubber is rolled up with ink and pressed to paper. The edition in this case was closed at four. The print comprises oil-based ink on acid free paper and should present no keeping difficulties. The image measures 7 x 8¾ inches on a 10 x 12 inch sheet and will fit straight into a standard 10 x 12 inch frame.

Materials used:

black oil-based printing ink, Lambeth cartridge 130 gsm

1 PM in Vigo (2017)
