These pieces use a mixture of (very) subtle screen monoprint and multi-layered stochastic Turing textures to use screen printing like a sketching medium. To build on the strategic application of density in textures, I tried applying mismatched varnish textures, with the aim of selectively accentuating the texture of regions, through the controlled ‘curdling’ of the two varnishes.

About the Artist

Alastair Keady is a graphic design graduate of NCAD and the Royal College of Art. He’s worked as a designer, and design educator, for far too long to dwell on. He makes prints, out of the Damn Fine Print studio in Stoneybatter, which he hand prints in small editions, or sometimes, as one-offs. He gets enormous enjoyment out of resolving print pieces, and hopes that others get as much enjoyment out of living with them.

Alastair is interested in process and materiality in printmaking, He previously worked in letterpress, but returned to screen printing in 2017. You can find him applying or adapting an image-making technique, and then discovering ways to undermine, abuse, and subvert it. He loves a happy accident, and the hands-on nature of manual screenprinting means that accidents are all too common. He’s disinterested in rigorous adherence to consistency in a world of perfect reproduction.
