New York Reflections.

Gloucestershire, UK: Leslie Gerry Editions, 2015. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Text set and printed by Whittington Press. "New York Reflections...[are] the result of an intense three week visit to New York in May 2013 to observe, sketch and gather reference material. These paintings, full of colour, light and shadows are his observations and reflect a very personal view of the city. An enormous publication with 26 powerful colour plates dominating a 22x20 inch sheet. The text is made up of extracts from Jan Morris' book Manhattan '45." (from the prospectus)
"Once back in my studio, a year of painting begins. With a stylus and Wacom tablet, I paint on the computer in Illustrator.  Working only with flat areas of colour (CMYK) and no tone, I “cut out” colour shapes with the stylus, arranging them on different layers, creating a collage. In fact, I first began working this way years ago (before developing my computer skills)  by cutting out sheets of coloured paper with scissors, similar to the way Matisse created his paper cut-outs. Matisse described it as “drawing with colour”. The paintings end up as digital files; vector images which can be reduced or enlarged to any size. Therefore there is no scanning, the files can be printed directly from the computer onto a mould-made paper, using a flat-bed UV inkjet printer. The images give a narrative to the book." [artist statement]. Fine in Fine Archival Box. Tight, bright, and unmarred.
