Artist's description:

A ship serenely makes its' way from Port Said into the Suez Canal. But this is 1956 and the smooth surface belies the troubled waters that surge all around. Suez represented a national humiliation for Britain, forced to accept that it was not the equal of the USA and compelled to toe the American line. Britain is presently steeped in Brexit, the deepest political crisis since Suez and it looks like it will be forced to accept that it is not the equal of the EU either. And so it is 1956 again and we must endure the same hand-wringing, waywardness and gloom.

The black of this print was pulled from a relief matrix cut from rubber. The other colours were applied via stencil. Both processes were developed by myself so I cannot point to any forerunner.

Materials used:

oil-based printing ink, Johannot paper

Suez (2018)
