Patrick Edgeley creates limited edition Pop Art screen prints that employ bold, hand drawn text and imagery. Americana, signs, packaging and pop culture are a great influence in these hand printed works.
A love for all things typographical can be seen through out Edgeley's screen prints, something that stems from his many years work as a graphic designer. The screen prints are produced in short, limited edition runs.
He says “My work has changed direction in recent years to now include collaging of imagery mixed with panels of colour. As always I’m inspired by the 20th century, especially Americana. It’s optimism for space travel, the latest gadget or quirky packaging promoting artificial flavours and radiation and of course not forgetting its fantastic colourful, kitsch packaging."
Patrick Edgeley carefully creates is editions, with many layers including metals and glazes to complete each image.
Screen printing is a technique that is over 1000 years old but made popular by the likes of Eduardo Paolozzi, Peter Blake, Patrick Caulfield and Andy Warhol the 1960's.
Edgeley continues “I love the whole sequence of actions when producing a print. I tend to push myself to see just what I can achieve, either in number of colours I use, complexity of design or experimenting with techniques. It can be a slow, frustrating process at times when the result doesn’t quite match your expectation, but these moments can also be a positive, steering you into a another direction with the print, helping to shape it like a painting. You simply don’t get with a press of a button on a inkjet printer, each screen print, although subtle, has it’s own uniqueness!”
