Artist's description:

I was looking through pictures of New York's subway system and noticed a train graffiti sprayed with the legend 'VAMM'. I looked up what Vamm meant and was surprised to find among the references that it is a Shetland word, meaning bewitched. I'd lived for ten years in Shetland so I was intrigued. I also found that there is presently a lively Shetland band of musicians who call themselves 'Vamm'. So here they are, playing the 42nd Street subway.

This print is pulled from an engraving cut from a sheet of rubber, a variation of letterpress. After removal of areas that are to be left as white paper, the rubber sheet is then rolled up with ink and pressed to paper, producing the print. The technique does not accommodate reprinting, so the edition is forever fixed at 5 copies.

Materials used:

oil based black printing ink, Heritage Bookwhite 160gsm
