Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rite of Spring)

RoS_Screenprint_450

New body of work to be shown during the Kilkenny Arts Festival. It includes Screenprints, Gicléé prints and linocuts.

The work is inspired in Igor Stravinsky work that set-off contemporary classical music.

As per the working process, I’ve spent the last few months experimenting with printmaking textures and then collaging them into a digital composite; only to get them printed again. A little bit like that chopping and pasting that allegedly Igor Stravinsky did when composing the work that gives name and concept to this collection of work.

10% of the proceeds from the sales of the works will be donated to Cancer Research
