David Shrigley’s edition expands upon the much recognised dialogue between the artist and his audience. Confronting the passer-by with a deadpan proclamation, he discloses an uncomfortably candid take on his working methods as an artist.
Taking the appearance of a brief handwritten note from the artist to the viewer, each print bears a trail of the laborious and slightly awkward process with which the artist hand-cut each oversized letter from lino. At DCA the artist also developed his own ‘hand cut’ font for a new series of large-scale monoprints produced at the Print Studio.
