Half Tone Flat Bed Editions and Originals

Half Tone Flat Bed Editions and Originals

Half Tone Flat Bed Printing onto 1.2 mm thick aluminium panels in a range of sizes and formats.

A reprographic technique that simulates continuous-tone imagery through the use of dots, thus generating a gradient-like effect, Alan's Half Tone artwork brings his traditional approach to screen printing into the contemporary digital world. Sprayed directly on to the brushed aluminium composite panels, the ink is then cured by a UV light that bonds it to the surface of the substrate, resulting in a resistant and long-lasting work of art that can even be displayed in outdoor exhibitions. This approach opens up endless ways to add texture and depth by building the image up in multiple layers, very much like the screen-printing process. The finished image is waterproof and very resistant to abrasion, so that there is no need to protect the art behind glass. The piece can be hung without a frame, creating a sharp and minimal presentation of the art floating less than an inch (15 mms) off of the wall. The piece can also be traditionally framed and hung if desired. Alan’s work in this medium brings exceptional precision, intensity, and glamour to the finished art.

In addition to the Limited Editions in this collection, one off and short run Half Tone Flat Bed Prints can be created at very large sizes up to a maximum 8 x 4 feet - 2.4 x 1.2 metres.
